Avocado may be the generation whole fruit medicine for the prevention and treatment of prostate cancer with no side effects, some scientists found
Prostate cancer is a medical condition in which the cells of the prostate has become cancerous, causing abnormal cells growth.
Most prostate cancers are slow growing and can be detected during the physical (rectum) exams.
Most cases of prostate cancer start in the cell on the surface of the inner lining of the prostate tissues.
At the advanced stage, as the tumor continues to grow, it may suppress the nearly healthy tissue and nerve cells leading to severe symptoms and pain.
According to the statistic provided by the American Cancer Society, 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Approximately, 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older.
Most common symptoms of prostate cancer include frequent urination, weak or interrupted urine flow or the need to strain to empty the bladder. and the urge to urine frequently at night due to the large size of the tumor that suppresses the bladder and the flow of urine.
Some patients may also experience symptoms blood in the urine, blood in the seminal fluid and pain or burning during urination caused by the tumor that breaks the nearby small veins and nerve cells.
At this stage, cancerous cells from the prostate gland can also travel a distance away to infect other healthy tissue and organ, leading to the secondary metastasis.
There are many risk factors associated with the onset of prostate cancer. However, the increase in age, location and behavioral correlates are some prevalent risk of the disease onset.
According to the University of Zurich, factors that may enhance prostate cancer risk include frequent consumption of dairy products and, possibly, meat and increased physical activity, intakes of tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, and soy are possible preventative behavioral factors.
Avocado is commercially valuable fruit cultivated in tropical climates throughout the world. It is a green-skinned, pear-shaped fruit that ripens after harvesting and native to the Caribbean, Mexico, South America, and Central America, belonging to the flowering plant family Lauraceae.
With an aim to discover a natural ingredient or whole food for the prevention and treatment of prostate cancer with no side effects, researchers at the University of the West Indies investigate the intake of dietary MUFAs from whole fruit of avocado in the risk of prostate cancer (PCa).
In vitro, injection of acetone extract of avocado containing carotenoids and tocopherols inhibited the growth of both androgen-dependent (LNCaP) and androgen-independent (PC-3) prostate cancer cell lines.
