Selenium may lower risk of prostate cancer

Postby talkhealth on Wed Feb 29, 2012 12:39 pm

Could brazil nuts help you lower the risk of prostate cancer? A new study suggests it can.

Brazil nuts along with yeast, whole grains and seafood contains selenium which may protect the body from the damaging effects of molecules linked to disease.

It is hoped that selenium supplements will help to treat existing prostate cancer and potentially lower the risk of prostate cancer.

This is interesting as my husband eats Brazil nuts but usually only at Christmas -think I'll be buying them more often!

I am happy to share that I have been working with a company for the past 3 years that has an excellent product to prevent prostate problems/cancer. The key is always prevention .. But so many people wait until they have serious problems before they become concerned enough to take any action. The statistics ought to tell us something ... one in 6 men will get prostate cancer ... one in two black men get prostate cancer!!

Shame the EU banned selling them in shell because they thought the shells caused cancer :-(
