Prostate Cancer, Farming and Other Risk Factors: A Mini Review

  title={Prostate Cancer, Farming and Other Risk Factors: A Mini Review},
  author={M. Sharma and John Lawson and Chandima P. Karunanayake and Dosman Ja and Pawha Punam},
  journal={Reproductive System and Sexual Disorders},
Prostate cancer is the fourth most common cancer and is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer among men. Studies have suggested that an increased risk of prostate cancer among men may be associated with age, race/ ethnicity and family history of cancer. The etiology of prostate cancer is not precisely known with respect to other putative risk factors such as farming, exposure to pesticides and lifestyle factors. Therefore, the purpose of this paper was to review the published literature… 

Nutrition Knowledge vis-à-vis Health Status of Indian Punjabi Males with Carcinoma Prostate

Findings indicated almost two fold increment in quantum of improvement in nut rition knowledge among the respondents in group II as compared to group I, indicating nutrition education if intervened at initiation or early stages may have positive impact to prolong the disease.

Health Benefits and Pharmacological Molecular Properties of Isoflavandiol (Equol): In-silico and in-vitro Updates

Docking result of EQ with different proteins, summarize the various bonding energy, hydrogen bond, and electrostatic bond of EQ, and chart out various ADME/T properties of EQ which are conclusive for drug-like properties.



Farmers at risk for prostate cancer.

Farmers probably have a slightly elevated risk of contracting prostate cancer, but it is as yet unclear whether this excess risk is caused by particular occupational exposures or by risk factors in their personal lifestyle.

Prostate cancer epidemiology.

A new generation of large-scale multidisciplinary population-based studies is beginning to investigate gene-gene and gene-environment interactions, which may lead to better detection, treatment, and, ultimately, prevention of prostate cancer.

Alcohol consumption and prostate cancer: a mini review.

The relation between alcohol consumption and prostate cancer risk is analyzed and it is observed that high consumption of meat, alcohol and dairy products has been linked to a greater risk.

Pesticides and prostate cancer: a review of epidemiologic studies with specific agricultural exposure information

Existing evidence does not point to any pesticide as satisfying widely used guidelines for establishing causation: a strong, exposure-dependent and demonstrably unconfounded, unbiased association, documented in several studies.

Human prostate cancer risk factors

The authors conclude that most of the data regarding risk relies, of necessity, on epidemiologic studies, but animal and cell culture models offer promise in confirming some important findings.

Risk Factors for Prostate Cancer

In the control of prostate cancer, the identification of risk factors and the promotion of active preventive medicine can provide enormous benefits to the super-aging society of the authors' future.

Evidence of a two-fold excess risk of prostate cancer among farmers with substantial exposure to pesticides is found, and suggestions of trends for elevated risks were noted with other agricultural chemicals, but these are largely novel and need further confirmation in larger samples.

The burden of prostate cancer in Canada.

Uncertainty regarding the value of screening for prostate cancer has been, and continues to be, a challenge for primary care physicians and urologists.

A prospective study of demographics, diet, and prostate cancer among men of Japanese ancestry in Hawaii.

Increased consumption of rice and tofu were both associated with a decreased risk of prostate cancer, while consumption of seaweeds was associated with an increased risk, and there was no relationship between prostate cancer and the intake of various nutrients, including total fat and total protein.

Diet, supplement use, and prostate cancer risk: results from the prostate cancer prevention trial.

Neither dietary nor supplemental intakes of nutrients often suggested for prostate cancer prevention, including lycopene, long-chain n-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, vitamin E, and selenium, were significantly associated with cancer risk.
