Prostate cancer has the highest prevalence of any nonskin cancer in the human body, with similar likelihood of neoplastic foci found within the prostates of men around the world regardless of diet, occupation, lifestyle, or other factors. Essentially all men with circulating androgens will develop microscopic prostate cancer if they live long enough. This review is a contemporary and comprehensive, literature‐based analysis of the putative risk factors for human prostate cancer, and the results… 
Dietary Carcinogens and DNA Adducts in Prostate Cancer.
TLDR
This book chapter provides a comprehensive, literature-based review on dietary factors and their molecular mechanisms of prostate carcinogenesis and can improve public health research, nutritional education and chemoprevention strategies.
Epidemiology of Prostate Cancer
TLDR
There is no evidence yet on how to prevent prostate cancer; however, it is possible to lower the risk by limiting high-fat foods, increasing the intake of vegetables and fruits and performing more exercise.
Occupational Risk Factors for Prostate Cancer: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
The literature review supports a causal association for a few of the previously suggested factors that have been suggested to cause prostate cancer.
Endogenous sex hormones and the risk of prostate cancer: A prospective study
TLDR
Overall, prostate cancer risks were unrelated to serum T, estimated free and bioavailable T, and SHBG; however, risks increased with increasing T:SHBG ratio, and the significance of this ratio in steroidal biology is unclear.
Occupational Risk Factors for Prostate Cancer : A Meta-analysis Review
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide. There are many occupational factors that have been suggested to cause prostate cancer. Our aim was to evaluate the evidence for
Impact of diet on prostate cancer: a review
TLDR
Despite confounding factors present in clinical studies assessing the effect of diet on cancer risk, the data remain compelling that a variety of nutrients may prevent the development and progression of prostate cancer.
Risk factors for prostate cancer: A case control study
TLDR
To decrease the prostate cancer among Iranian men, more emphasis should be placed on screening programs to identify prostate cancer in men with the positive family history of cancer, the overweight ones, the ones with higher sitting height, and those who use hookah.

Vitamin D and Prostate Cancer Risk
TLDR
Evidence from diverse areas of study – epidemiologic, molecular, genetic, cellular, animal models, and clinical trials – suggests that vitamin D may be an effective preventive agent against prostate cancer.
Risk Factors for Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is one of the representative cancers that show a marked difference in morbidity by race and region. In the U.S.A., the annual frequency for the diagnosis of prostate cancer is ranked
Epidemiologic evidence regarding predisposing factors to prostate cancer
TLDR
A framework for understanding genetic and environmental factors which may predisposing to prostate cancer is presented and the identification of factors which predispose to clinical prostate cancer offers the possibility of lowering the incidence and mortality of prostate cancer in the United States.
Hereditary Prostate Cancer and Other Genetic Predispositions to Prostate Cancer
TLDR
Transmission model and linkage analysis has been suggested, showing that a large proportion of familial CaP may not be due to segregation of a few major gene mutations, but rather to familial sharing of alleles at many loci, each contributing to a small increase in cancer risk.
Dietary fat and prostate cancer: current status.
TLDR
It is concluded that dietary fat may indeed be related to prostate cancer risk, although the specific fat components that are responsible are not yet clear.
Leptin is associated with increased prostate cancer risk: a nested case-referent study.
TLDR
Modately elevated plasma leptin concentrations are associated with later development of prostate cancer, and a critical fat mass related to an interior milieu favorable for prostate cancer development seems to exist, because intermediate but not high leptin levels are related to prostate cancer risk.
Androgen receptor CAG repeats and prostate cancer.
TLDR
The authors focus on CAG repeat length because recent research suggests that men with shorter AR CAG lengths are at a greater risk of developing prostate cancer than are those with longer variants.
