Prostate Cancer - North American men more at risk than their Eastern counterparts

(NC) - Research indicates that prostate cancer is significantly lower in Asia than in North America. In fact, less than two percent of Asian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. Experts believe that this could be due to the difference in their diet - Asian men consume more legumes than their Western counterparts. North American men tend to eat more meat, eggs, and dairy products as a source of protein and therefore, the Western diet is deficient in isoflavones. Isoflavones are compounds found in various legumes such as soy, chick peas and beans and are known to regulate cell growth in the prostate.

There is now a wealth of evidence about the important connection between diet and prostate health, and there is a natural dietary supplement known as Trinovin that has been shown to reduce prostate and urinary tract problems in men.

"Clinical research confirms that a once daily dose of Trinovin, a red clover isoflavone, is safe and effective in providing relief of the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlargement of the prostate. Patients experience increased urinary flow, a reduction in the number of times they wake at night to urinate, and ultimately an improved quality of life," says Dr. David Saul, a male health specialist. "More interestingly, research indicates that taking this natural health supplement delays the progression of prostate cancer. In one study, the incidence of cancer cell death occurred an average of five times more often in patients receiving Trinovin compared to the untreated group," adds Dr. Saul.

This is promising news for the approximately 20,000 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year in Canada or for the one in two men over the age of 50 who will have some form of prostate or urinary problem.

George Bathe has suffered with an enlarged prostate for about 15 years, which caused him much discomfort and aggravation. He could hardly sleep and would have to urinate three or four times a night. "I started taking Trinovin after speaking with my doctor, and within just one month I could see an improvement. I was no longer getting up at night to urinate and the constant pressure on my bladder was gone. I can't tell you how much better I feel now that I get a good night's rest," says George.

This natural health supplement is available over-the-counter in pharmacies and health food outlets across Canada. Before taking this product, speak to your doctor to ensure it is the right option for you.
