Let’s face it… prostate cancer is scary.
And that’s why many men today are still having prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests.
The test is flawed… it yields false-positives and false-negatives left and right… but it MAY save your life, right?
Well, maybe not…
New research shows how PSA tests do exactly nothing to add years to your life!
This review and meta-analysis published in the prestigious British Medical Journal involved 721,718 men.
And it found that guys who get the PSA test don’t live ANY longer than guys who don’t.
Saving lives? Not so much…
Worse, PSA tests often yield “false-positives” that can result in biopsies and treatment you don’t need.
The truth is that a vast majority of prostate cancers are slow-growing and may never cause a single serious symptom.
Plus, even when the PSA works as it should, it’s just CATCHING cancer… how about we focus on STOPPING cancer from developing in the first place?
One way to do that is the supplement quercetin.
Quercetin works to fight prostate cancer at the cellular level. It does this by blocking two messengers called IL-6 (Interleukin 6) and NF kappaB that activate tumor growth.
Without these activators, the cancer cells can’t grow and start committing cell-suicide, known as apoptosis.
In one study, quercetin was shown to slow down or stop the growth of prostate cancer cells by FIVE different mechanisms!
One way to increase your quercetin levels is to choose foods rich with this miraculous substance, including berries, onions, salad greens, quinoa, and grapes.
But if you prefer to supplement, don’t go with just anything off the shelf. Quercetin can easily break down in a capsule, destroying its cancer-fighting powers. So be sure to choose a high-quality product.
