The Prostate Disease Epidemic


Those afflicted with benign prostate disease have trouble urinating and voiding, especially at night. Aged men are often forced to get up several times a night to urinate and still do not feel they have completely emptied their bladders. The relentless frustration of chronic urinary urgency is a major cause of sleep disturbance and loss of quality of life.

One proven method of avoiding prostate disease is surgical castration at the age of 40. By removing most of the testosterone production from the body, the prostate gland does not enlarge and the risk of prostate cancer would be reduced. Another way to mitigate age-related prostate enlargement is to modulate testosterone metabolism by preventing it from converting to estrogens and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Pharmaceutical extracts from the saw palmetto berry, pygeum africanum, and stinging nettle are proven to reduce the size of the prostate gland and alleviate the miseries of benign prostate enlargement. These herbal extracts may be more effective in preventing, rather than treating this epidemic disease.

For men with early stage prostate cancer, The Life Extension Foundation's hormonal modulation protocol has proven to work in virtually every single case. To review this clinically successful protocol, refer to the Foundation website at, the Disease Prevention and Treatment Protocol book, or call 1-800-841-5433 to request a free copy sent by mail.

After age 60, the number of men who suffer urinary difficulties caused by prostate enlargement may exceed 70%. Autopsy studies show that 40% of men in their 50's are afflicted with benign prostate enlargement.
