In his latest book, Frank Murray, the reliably informative author of numerous books on health and nutrition, delves into the prostate and its potential for problems. Although prostate cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, there is an admitted lack of clinical data available on the topic. Despite this slight drawback, however, Murray has managed to unearth valuable research material on every conceivable aspect of the prostate. This venerable author has once again accomplished what he does so well, which is to meticulously research and string together clinical studies that give scientific underpinning to he methods and treatments he espouses and put them into relevant categories in a cogent, easily accessible narrative for the reader.How to Prevent Prostate Problems defines exactly what the prostate is and how it is vulnerable to such diseases as benign prostatic hyperplasia, cancer, and prostatitis, and then talks about how to prevent, or, if that92;s not an option, correctly diagnose and discuss what treatments there are. As there are no magic bullets, this can be tricky, so both you and your doctor need to thoroughly understand the choices for treating these maladies. To illustrate some of the methods available, Murray has included case histories of men whose various prostate conditions have been successfully treated in different ways.Vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other supplements to help counter prostate irregularities are each given a comprehensive section, as are environmental hazards. The specter of vasectomies possibly causing prostate cancer is also discussed, and a number of trials show no obvious correlation between the two, but, to date, there are no definitive results. The back of the book contains an excellent Glossary of terms used in the book, a list of helpful Resources, a chapter-by-chapter listing of the references cited, and an Index.More that a resource, How to Prevent Prostate Problems comes close to being a source for anyone wanting to learn about the subject for themselves or their loved ones.
