URO TODAY: Canadian researchers have found significant links between prostate cancer and a range of agricultural and gardening chemicals also used at various times in New Zealand.

These include DDT, simazine, lindane, dichlone, dinoseb amine, malathion, endosulfan, 2,4-D, 2,4-DB, and carbaryl. READ MORE>

URO TODAY: Mice fed a diet enriched with 10% tomato powder – from heat-processed paste from whole cherry tomatoes (including seeds and skins) – showed a dramatic rise in prostate cancer survival. READ MORE>

This diet significantly increased overall survival rate (from 11% to 67%)…

Biochemical data disclosed an increase in serum antioxidant activity, and a reduction of serum inflammation/angiogenesis biomarkers of particular importance in prostate carcinogenesis.

URO TODAY: Israeli scientists have demonstrated that hyper-sensitive sensors used on people’s breath can detect cancer, including what type it is. READ MORE>

This follows up earlier research which found dogs have the same ability.

The results showed that the nano-sensor array could differentiate between ‘healthy’ and ‘cancerous’ breath, and, furthermore, between the breath of patients having different cancer types.

The reported results could lead to the development of an inexpensive, easy-to-use, portable, non-invasive tool that overcomes many of the deficiencies associated with the currently available diagnostic methods for cancer.

URO TODAY: Men having a biopsy for prostate cancer need to be warned that it will temporarily affect urination and may also have an impact on erectile function, a German study says. READ MORE>

Prostate biopsy causes impaired voiding (of the bladder).

Saturation (20-core) prostate biopsy and periprostatic nerve block seem to have a lasting impact on voiding function.

Erectile function is transiently affected by prostate biopsy regardless of periprostatic nerve block and the number of cores.

Patients who undergo prostate biopsy must be informed about these side effects.

URO TODAY: A more precise grading system is needed to predict men’s erectile function recovery after nerve-sparing prostate surgery, a study shows. READ MORE>

Our data support the adoption of a subjectively assigned nerve-sparing score to more precisely predict erectile function outcomes and suggest that even minor nerve trauma significantly impairs the recovery of erectile function after procedures classically regarded as having achieved bilateral nerve sparing.

Further studies are needed to identify the optimal nerve-sparing system.

URO TODAY:  Having a low carb diet is as good as a no-carb one when it comes to surviving prostate cancer, tests on mice have shown. READ MORE>

Previous studies indicate that carbohydrate intake influences prostate cancer biology, as mice fed a no-carbohydrate ketogenic diet had significantly smaller tumours and longer survival than mice fed a Western diet.

As it is nearly impossible for humans to consume and maintain a no-carbohydrate ketogenic diet, we determined whether diets containing 10% or 20% carbohydrate kcal showed similar tumor growth as NCKD.
