Guest Report - Why All the Beards And Moustaches?

 

Has anyone noticed recently the increase in the number of beards and moustaches on men lately? 

Many think this is in honor of another deer hunting season, but actually there is more to this hairy phenomenon. It's Movember, the month formerly known as November! During this month, thousands of men and according to the internet, even some women are sprouting moustaches on their faces in support of men's health, including prostate cancer and testicular awareness. In 2011 this moustache movement raised nearly $126 million to support the cause and motto of “changing the face of men's health.”

Prostate cancer is the second leading cancer for men in the U.S. and takes thousands of lives each year. This past month of Movember has created an awareness and raised funds, but a moustache won't prevent an individual from developing prostate cancer. Preventative action should be taken to lessen the incidence of this devastating disease.

Here are a few tips on a healthier lifestyle that can work to prevent prostate cancer as well as many other cancers:

  • Eat a diet that is full of fruits and vegetables. You'll get the health-benefits from these foods that are rich in anti-oxidants, which fight against cancer causing free radicals. Try vegetables like broccoli, carrots and tomatoes which have been recognized as powerful preventors for prostate cancer.
  • Enjoy berries all year round: full of flavonols, these tasty superfoods can inhibit fast growing cancer cells in tumors. Eat them fresh in season, and keep available in your freezer to enjoy during the off season.
  • Go Nuts: Nuts contain anti-oxidants like quercetin and campferol which are thought to stop cancer growth. The Brazil nut contains selenium -- a powerful anti-oxidant.
  • Get Moving: 30 minutes of exercise a day is recommended by the American Cancer Society and American Heart Association. 

Whether or not you sport a hairy lip, it's important to do your part to prevent prostate cancer.  While you are working hard to stay healthy, you will surely enjoy the benefits of Feeling Better and Living Longer!
