  • Theres 3 types of Diseases: What is yours?

    I discussed this on another post briefly and i want to shed some light on 3 things you should watch for closely..

    There are 3 known diseases in this country that should be watched to the utmost as they are known to be the most common of all diseases..

    1# Heart Disease

    Heart disease is a deadly killer that is brought about by eating foods that are blood clotting and fattening and things of this nature.. Many Americans suffer from heart disease because a large portion of our diets are high cholesterol and high fattening foods..

    Cut the fats and beef up on fiber and good fats.. The bad fats and high cholesterol levels must be avoid at all costs most likely..

    2# Prostate Cancer

    This ailment is especially higher for men. It is a disease that may come about when the body is low on fibers of the sorts... With low fiber intakes the prostate can induce wild diseases such as this one..

    beef up on those fibers.. grains fruits and vegetables are your best bet so any one that usually eats meat and dairy products may be victim to this disorder indeed..

    3# High Blood Pressure..

    Yes allot of the focus is on fats and things, but sugar is not off the hook from also being a deadly killer.. High blood pressure can come about when large amounts of sugar and salt or sodium levels are induced... This is especially common with the average American diet that consumes high levels of snacks and sweets, and use large amounts of seasonings in their foods...

    cut that extra plesure... the seasoning and sweets are added pleasures that should be minimized at all cost..

    I am not even off the hook when it comes to sweets for i have a sweet tooth...High blood pressure is something i had to deal with in thew past...

    Now that you all know lets play a Little game..
    Tell me which one of these type of ailments do you think you would be more prone to then others.. Are you the heart diseased man or the bad prostate man..

    If your not sure then tell me what your favorite foods are and what are some of your routines concerning eating and i will see if a can guess what you may be prone to now if you did not check on it or in the future in case your doctors may have slipped on reminding you..

      Top 3 Diseases that Affect Men and Possible Treatments

Of course, there are diseases that men are more at risk for, and it’s important to keep this in mind when selecting a diet, exercise program, or even medication. Here are three of the most common diseases affecting men, along with symptoms and possible methods of prevention. Prostate Cancer Prostate cancer forms when cells in the body begin to reproduce rapidly at an uncontrolled rate. The additional cells form a growth or tumor, and prostate cancer occurs when a cancerous tumor forms in the prostate, a gland in male reproductive system. In the early stages of prostate cancer, the tumor needs testosterone, the male hormone, in order to thrive. The cancer is a slow-growing disease, and rarely affects men under the age of 40; however, it is important to make changes to diet and exercise plans early in life to prevent the onset of prostate cancer later, since cancer cells can also break away from the original tumor in the prostate and spread to other organs in the body. Doctors aren’t exactly sure what causes prostate cancer, but age is definitely a risk factor. 75% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer are age 65 or older, and the average age of diagnosis is 70. African-American men are also at greater risk for prostate cancer; the disease is least common in Asian and Native American men. The disease may also be genetic; a man’s chances of developing prostate cancer are increased if his father or brother had the disease. Lack of exercise, excessive drinking, and smoking are all factors that could make a man more at risk for the disease as well. Of course, as with most cancers, diet can play a large role in prevention. Men that consume diets high in animal fat tend to be more at risk for prostate cancer, so a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is recommended. It is also important to consume foods rich in lycopene, a substance found in tomatoes that can also improve vision. This has been proven to reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men of all ages. It is rather difficult to diagnose prostate cancer in its early stages, since there are usually no obvious symptoms. However, the need to urinate frequently, especially in the middle of the night, could be a sign of prostate cancer if it persists for weeks. A burning sensation when urinating could also be a sign of prostate cancer. Pain in the upper thighs, hips, and/or lower back could also be a symptom, so it’s important for men to pay special attention to how their body feels after performing regular duties like going to work or exercising at a regular pace, since additional pain in these areas of the body could be an indication of prostate cancer. However, many of these symptoms could just be due to the enlargement of the prostate, and not the cancer itself, but could serve as warning signs to make major lifestyle changes in order to prevent the disease. Treatments for prostate cancer include hormonal therapy, radiation therapy, or surgery. Since each man’s body is different, it’s important to talk to the doctor about the best ways to treat prostate cancer, as well as ongoing treatment options after surgery. Liver Disease/Cancer Liver cancer is more likely to occur in men because men tend to drink and smoke more. Men are twice as likely to develop liver cancer than women, and the cancer is expected to affect approximately 17,550 cases of liver disease or cancer will be reported in the United States during 2005. The liver is the largest organ in the body, and helps the body to fight off infections and process nutrients. The liver also produces clotting factors that help the blood to clot properly after a cut or injury. Since the liver contains a number of cells because of its many functions, many types of cancers or tumors can contaminate it. Some of these tumors are benign or non-cancerous, but could still be a warning to take extra care of the liver in the future. Benign tumors include hepatic adenomas, which are tumors that derive from the main type of liver cell, the hepatocyte. In most cases, these tumors do not cause any discomfort or pain, but should be removed if stomach pain or blood loss begins to occur. Hemangioma, another benign tumor, is the most common type of non-cancerous tumor and starts in the blood vessels. Again, this tumor may not always cause pain, but will sometimes need to be surgically removed if excessive bleeding occurs. Malignant or cancerous tumors are obviously more of a health concern, but can be prevented and even treated effectively. The most common form of liver cancer in adults is hepatocellular carcinoma. This type of cancer begins in the hepatocytes, and three out of four cases of liver cancer are hepatocellular carcinoma. In most cases, this disease begins in one part of the liver and takes different growth patterns, and in later stages of the cancer development, the cancer will spread to other parts of the liver, and even other body parts. Excessive use of alcohol and tobacco are among the main causes for liver cancer, since cirrhosis, or scarring of the tissue of the liver occurs as a result of alcohol abuse. Men who struggle with hepatitis are also at great risk for liver cancer, since hepatitis weakens the liver and makes it much easier for cancer to form. Men are also more at risk for liver cancer because of the use of anabolic steroids, which many athletes use to increase their athletic performance. Currently, the only proven effective ways to eliminate liver cancer is to have surgery to remove the tumor, or to receive a liver transplant. If the surgeon removes all visible cancer at the time of surgery, the chances for survival are greater, and the risk of developing the cancer again is significantly reduced. For the most part, complete removal for most liver cancers isn’t possible, and most people with cirrhosis of the liver can not have surgery since the liver is too severely damaged. Radiation therapy or ablation (destroying the tumor without removing it) are also possible treatment options for liver cancer; however, it is best to have a doctor assess the stage of cancer to suggestion a proper treatment option. One of the best ways for men to reduce the risk of developing liver cancer is to be vaccinated for hepatitis B and C, since there is no cure for this infection, and is one of the major factors that can lead to liver cancer. Significantly reducing alcohol intake and eliminating smoking are also very effective ways to prevent liver cancer. There are also a number of foods that can help to reduce the risk of liver disease in men. Any foods with natural antioxidant properties, like fruits and vegetables (i.e. leafy green vegetables, citrus fruit, beets and gourd fruits like melon and papaya), especially those high in Vitamins C and E, and a diet rich in fiber will help the body to effectively fight off infection and will keep bile secretions regular. High blood pressure or hypertension Men are not necessarily at higher risk for high blood pressure, however, due to factors like stress on the job or lack of sleep, hypertension effects a significant amou

        bro, check out metabolic syndrome or x syndrome... shows how too much glucose intake can cause a lot of problems....

            mind you, glucose is not only from sugar, like from tea, coffee or cakes, it can be from fruits, and taking too much carbs can give the same, if not, more problems to the body...

              glucose literally means a type of sugar ..
              there are different types of sugar..

              there is sucrose which is like table sugar
              there is lactose which is the sugar of milk
              and there is fructose which is the sugar of friuts.

              yes it is true that glucose from any source can be deadly...

              of course eating to much of anything is unhealthy..
              eating glucose with a substance in its natural state is allot healthier than consuming it processed..
              this is why it is recommended to consume prodcuts with sugars because they are healthy..

                What Are Carbohydrates?

                Carbohydrates are found in a wide array of foods—bread, beans, milk, popcorn, potatoes, cookies, spaghetti, soft drinks, corn, and cherry pie. They also come in a variety of forms. The most common and abundant forms are sugars, fibers, and starches.
                The basic building block of every carbohydrate is a sugar molecule, a simple union of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Starches and fibers are essentially chains of sugar molecules. Some contain hundreds of sugars. Some chains are straight, others branch wildly.
                Carbohydrates were once grouped into two main categories. Simple carbohydrates included sugars such as fruit sugar (fructose), corn or grape sugar (dextrose or glucose), and table sugar (sucrose). Complex carbohydrates included everything made of three or more linked sugars. Complex carbohydrates were thought to be the healthiest to eat, while simple carbohydrates weren't so great. It turns out that the picture is more complicated than that.
                The digestive system handles all carbohydrates in much the same way—it breaks them down (or tries to break them down) into single sugar molecules, since only these are small enough to cross into the bloodstream. It also converts most digestible carbohydrates into glucose (also known as blood sugar), because cells are designed to use this as a universal energy source.

                  I have none of the above although my heart does weird things like keeps my pulse rate very slow and stuff like that (but that's cos' of a preexisting condition) but if anything, my blood pressure is low. I just wanted to add that I think some of the most dangerous foods are:

                  a) foods which contain artificial colourants, flavourings or preservatives such as tartrazine, aspartame or Enumbers (which are found in many processed foods and almost all processed drinks such as fruit squash) and

                  b) transfats such as hydrogenated vegetable oil (which are found in ready meals and many other processed foods and these are worse for health than butter).

                  I think sticking to the most unprocessed and natural forms of food is best and doesn't necessarily have to be time consuming or expensive.
