A healthy diet may reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer and possibly prevent or delay prostate cancer progression.Good nutrition also reduces the risk of developing other major chronic diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension and heart disease. It is estimated that one-third of cancer deaths in the United States can be attributed to adult diet and physical activity, including their role in obesity.The University of California, San Francisco, has developed a new guide as a companion, to complement the diet and lifestyle recommendations found in Health and Wellness: Living with Prostate Cancer (and still available from PCF).This new guide, Part 2, includes specific diet recommendations.Scientific evidence suggests that differences in diet and other lifestyle behaviors, such as exercise and smoking, may account for much of the variability in the rates of major chronic diseases across countries, including many cancers.Download the new guide here and then please share the link with support groups, friends and family: https://www.pcf.org/ ucsf-pcf-diet-guide/ .
Canada has over 60 Prostate Cancer Support Groups that meet once a month. This Richmond group in British Columbia is founded in 2013 by volunteers and focused on providing help to Chinese-speaking men, but everyone is welcome. We speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin, meet on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Seniors Centre of Minoru Centre for Active Living (7191 Granville Avenue, Richmond, BC V6Y 1N9 Multipurpose Room 1 (1033)). Join us for the professional presentation and talk to other men and family members who have been dealing with prostate cancer for weeks, months or even years.
No registration is required and all ages are welcome. Please swipe your Facility Pass ($28/year for seniors 55+ or spouses) or pay a $4.3 drop-in fee at the front desk when arriving for each session.
