In the Western world it’s almost a given that men over the age of 45 develop symptoms of prostate problems. These problems fall into three categories:
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) – non-cancerous prostate enlargement
- Prostatitis – inflammation of the prostate
- Prostate cancer
An alarming number of men progress through all three of these problem states.
The prostate is a walnut sized gland located just below a man’s bladder. Its role is to produce an optimal portion of the seminal fluid that carries sperm. The prostate initially becomes active during puberty, and usually remains healthy until midlife when prostate enlargement signals the end of carefree days. (more…)

A University of Illinois at Chicago study just published in the journal Endocrinology has determined that even a low level of exposure to the plastic component bisphenol A, or BPA, during development contributes to an increased risk of developing prostate cancer later in life. (more…)
Thanks to research from the University of Michigan and nearly three centuries of medicinal use, we can now utilize ginger root to not only kill ovarian cancer cells, but also prostate cancer cells with zero toxicity.
Truly among the great medicines of the world, ginger has long been used to treat inflammation and nausea, but the results presented in a session at the American Association for Cancer Research show that in every single instance where ginger powder was used to treat cancer cells, they all died as a result of being exposed to the compound. In medical lingo this is called apoptosis (cancer cell suicide.) When ginger is present, the cells even attack one another, called autophagy. (more…)
It’s a fact that 1 in 2 American men will suffer from prostate problems by age 50, and an astonishing 9 in 10 will by the age of 70. It’s a myth however that this is an unavoidable part of aging for men. You can be one of those lucky guys who doesn’t have any prostate problems whatsoever!
It’s a well-known fact that many of us men take a passive approach to our health. Maybe it’s our “tough guy” attitude, or perhaps we’re just busy. But way too often, we tend to ignore minor health issues until they become major problems. This is especially true when it comes to prostate health.
You may still think it won’t happen to you, but the odds are not good. And trust me, you don’t want to wait until it’s too late because the conventional approach to dealing with prostate problems is deeply flawed. It doesn’t address the root cause of the problem and can make things much worse. (more…)
The guy is Vernon Johnston, and his story was first reported as a Natural News citizen journalism article in 2009.
That was around one year after being informed he was cancer-free from stage IV prostate cancer that had metastasized into the bone matter of his pelvic area in June of 2008.
Now here it is, over five years later, and apparently Vernon’s still going strong, according to his website reports, videos and announcements. The last known blog posting from Vernon was in August of 2013. (more…)
