  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… Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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 rankedExpand

  • 2009
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
