Good morning all.

Well it's Sunday 6 am can't sleep. 1 more day to go for a new year to start. I feel we need all the help we can to try to give us a better life. As we get older is when we should be able to have some fun and enjoy all we can but with BPH problems and prostate cancer. It's sometimes hard to have some fun.

You do know that eating right does help and that is good but I also found this article on ZINK that I think may help men today. I started taking 50 mg of ZINK a day about a month ago.

You also know that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men..........

Research data has found that ZINC plays a part in maintaining prostate health. Studies show that the presence of ZINC in the body help suppress tumor growth, especially in the prostate. A number of studies demonstrate specific mechanisms by which ZINC act as a tumor suppressor, altering the biology of prostate cells to make them less likely to undergo malignant transformation, and less likely to multiply and survive has cancer cells

This is a very good article and I could go on but I feel that it is better if you read it yourself. I am giving you the jest of the article so you know what is going one. They also said that it is important to maintain optical level of ZINC to support a healthy prostate.

They recommend between 30 to 85 mg a day. I hope this helps and God Bless...............Ken

    Thanks Ken. I also had read that zinc supplements were good though I cannot pinpoint where I read that. But in the autumn I began taking the recommended dose here in UK of 15 mg per day. I have not observed any positive or negative effects
