URO TODAY: Cholesterol levels and prostate cancer definitely seem to be connected, a new study at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore has revealed. READ MORE>
Our study supports two prior ones suggesting that cholesterol influences risk of high-grade prostate cancer, and indirectly supports the hypothesis that cholesterol-lowering is a mechanism by which statins are protective.

JULY 28: PROSTABLOG NZ: When you go out into the sun and get all that beneficial Vitamin D on your skin – don’t go home and wash it off in the shower, says top NZ immunology scientist Dr Richard Forster.
Dr Forster – who is working with eminent colleague Dr Jim Watson on treatment for advanced prostate cancer that harnesses the body’s immune system – says lack of Vitamin D (from the sun) is linked to prostate cancer.
Men have more chance of contracting the disease the further away they live from the Equator.
We must get some sun exposure every day, if we can manage it, and ensure we don’t wash it off before the Vitamin D is absorbed, he told the Prostate Cancer Foundation of NZ annual conference in Napier last weekend. Absorption takes time.
Watch this website for a full report soon of what the two scientists say about avoiding and treating prostate cancer.

JULY 26: URO TODAY: High intake of secondary vegetable substances found in soy, called isoflavones, may protect against prostate cancer, according to findings in a study of multi-ethnic populations in California and Hawaii. READ MORE>
Phytoestrogens (or dietary estrogens) are of special interest in prostate cancer research, say the researchers at the University of Hawaii.
That’s because populations in Asia with a high consumption of phytoestrogens have a lower incidence of the disease than comparable populations in Western countries.
