The association of alcohol, diet, and other lifestyle factors with obstructive uropathy was investigated in a cohort of 6581 Japanese‐American men, examined and interviewed from 1971 to 1975 in Hawaii. By studying this migrant population with its heterogeneous exposures, it increases the probabilities of identifying potential risk factors of this prostate disorder. After 17 years of follow‐up, 846 incident cases of surgically treated obstructive uropathy were diagnosed with benign prostatic… 
Risk factors for lower urinary tract symptoms in a population-based sample of African-American men.
This was the first population-based study undertaken in African-American men to evaluate putative risk factors for moderate to severe LUTS, including subcategories of obstructive and irritative urinary symptoms, and associations with specific lifestyle and medical history risk factors were described.
Influence of diet quality on lower urinary tract
It is demonstrated that poor diet quality was independently associated with patient-reported LUTS, and an unhealthy diets, rural population and older men were associated with higher L UTS degree, whereas alcohol intake was protective from LUTs.
Alcohol is longitudinally associated with lower urinary tract symptoms partially via high-density lipoprotein.
There is strong evidence there is longitudinal association of alcohol consumption with lower urinary tract symptoms and the protective effect of light-moderate alcohol consumption on LUTS is in part modulated by HDL as a confounder, similar to its effect on coronary heart disease.
Dietary Factors and Prostate Benign Hyperplasia in Western Algeria
A role for dietary habits on the risk of BPH is suggested, a diet rich in fatty acids that may have a disadvantage effect in Algerian population.
Intakes of energy and macronutrients and the risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
BACKGROUND Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common disease of older men. Although the etiology remains unclear, nutritional factors may have an effect on the disease. OBJECTIVE Because the
Dietary patterns, supplement use, and the risk of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia: results from the prostate cancer prevention trial.
A diet low in fat and red meat and high in protein and vegetables, as well as regular alcohol consumption, may reduce the risk of symptomatic BPH.
Association of Dietary Elements and Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms
Dietary elements may also have an important role in the development of diseases causing LUTS and direct effects of food components may likewise influence the occurrence of LUTs.


High‐risk group for benign prostatic hypertrophy
It is concluded that dietaly and sexual habits may be important factors which place individuals at a higher risk for developing BPH.
Cigarette smoking, obesity, and benign prostatic hypertrophy: a prospective population-based study.
Multivariate analysis failed to show a relation between cigarette smoking or obesity and the development of surgically treated benign prostatic hypertrophy.

This study describes the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia among 2,036 volunteers in the Veterans Administration Normative Aging Study, a longitudinal study of human aging situated in
Epidemiologic characteristics of patients with prostatic neoplasms.
Fertility may be a manifestation of constitutional-hormonal factors that increase the risk of prostate cancer, and patients with children were found to have a relative risk of 2.69 for prostate cancer compared to the married patients with no children.
Epidemiology of benign prostatic hyperplasia: present knowledge and studies needed.
There are good reasons why the epidemiology of BPH has remained poorly understood although the application of more epidemiologic thought could pay great dividends, particularly if prostate screening programs could be exploited maximally.

Increasing age and an intact androgen supply seem to be prerequisites for BPH development, and no other risk factors have been identified uncontrovertedly.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia: a population-based study.
A population-based evaluation of the natural history of urologic disease is expected to clarify the relative utility of various treatment options and provide a useful perspective on the management of BPH.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) afflicts the majority of elderly men, and if current rates of surgery persist, the average 40-year-old man in the United States will have a 30 to 40 per cent chance
