Well-Done Meat Consumption May Increase Prostate Cancer Risk
Research into the dietary habits of about a thousand men from the Cleveland area has found that a high consumption of meats, especially of red meat prepared by grilling, is positively associated with an increased risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer. This particular study, which was led by Dr. John Witte of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), has a number of limitations, but it does add support to other investigations connecting meat consumption with cancer risk.
Toronto researchers speculate regarding a link between prostate cancer and oral contraceptive use
Very preliminary and speculative research, designed to spark further inquires, suggests that there may be a connection between oral contraceptive use and rising rates of prostate cancer. One theory is that the widespread use of birth-control pills in various populations may result in a higher level of estrogen in the environment, which might, in turn, increase prostate cancer risk.

Closer to Better Identification of Aggressive Forms of Prostate Cancer
Sorting aggressive and potentially lethal prostate cancer from the kind that is likely to remain dormant and confined to the prostate is a significant and ongoing research focus. A new study published online this month shows that researchers are closing in on this goal. It outlines plans for a gene-based prognostic test with the potential to determine aggressive and threatening forms of prostate cancer with more accuracy.
Internet Research Tips
The Internet enables men with prostate cancer to become knowledgeable about this disease and involved in their treatment and lifestyle decisions like never before. But there is so much information available that finding what you need and deciding on its usefulness and credibility is often very complicated.
Behavioural Therapy Treats Persistent Incontinence after Prostate Surgery
According to research published in the January 2011 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), behavioural therapy can help men who have had a radical prostatectomy re-establish bladder control, reducing incontinence episodes by over 50 percent even among men who have had persistent urinary incontinence for 1 to 17 years.
Nutrition for Prostate Health in the New Year
In late December 2010, researchers at the University of California, Riverside reported that components in pomegranate juice not only inhibit the movement of cancer cells but also weaken their attraction to chemical signals that promote the metastasis of prostate cancer to the bone. But the effects, if any, of pomegranate juice and other dietary or nutritional regimens on the progression of prostate cancer (or on prostate health, for that matter) remain controversial. So men are left with this question: What sort of diet might optimize prostate health?
Remembering Mark Dailey
This month, the world lost an important advocate for prostate cancer awareness and the Network lost a good friend. Reporter and broadcaster Mark Dailey, known as "The Voice of City TV," passed away on Monday, December 6 at Sunnybrook Hospital after a long battle with cancer, first prostate cancer (a fight he won) and then kidney cancer. He was 57.
