What is the prostate gland
The prostate gland - is musculo-glandular organ located below the bladder and surrounding the initial portion of the urethra. The main function of the prostate is to produce secretions, which is part of semen. Ducts of the prostate glands open into the urethra.

Prostate cancer
In the early stages of prostate cancer does not manifest itself. Complaints are associated with tumor spread and metastasis. At the stage the only manifestation of the lack of symptoms, allowing the disease to suspect, is to increase blood levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA).

Regardless of prostate disease in men with obesity , there is increased activity of genes in fat cells. These genes encode proteins involved in the immune response, inflammation, growth, reproduction, and cell death.

Increase in the activity of genes leads to inhibition of the immune response and stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, which creates favorable conditions for the progression of prostate cancer. The study's authors hope that the findings will more carefully selected treatments for patients with obesity.

American researchers have found that each person has a nose specific detector fat. With it, we can determine the level of this substance in different products.

Scientists at the California Science Center have found another way to avoid overeating, which can be used along with counting calories and a careful selection of products. It turns out that the person in the nose has its own excellent for detection of fat smell given to us by nature. Researchers believe that people can easily incorporate this detector for the regulation of its power.

Scientists believed that the smell of food is almost always determined by the man before he eats anything. It turned out that one of the first components of this odor is received by us olfactory information about whether the food contains fat. And if using innovative technologies, food producers will smell of fat in food more perceptible for the health of society, it will lead to a significant roll in the general trend of development of a worldwide epidemic of obesity .

The idea of a fit body for many people is having a flat belly and this is a goal of both men and women. Even though exercise is important, there are also some foods which can give really good results. It's not an easy task to get a flat stomach area, but with the right diet and proper exercise it is mission possible.

Next time you go grocery shopping, you could shop for these belly flattening foods which will serve as the right catalyst for the change. Try to get rid of the food in your fridge that fattens your stomach and focus on eating and living healthier. The first thing to understand is that you can't get any good results without regular eating. Missing the breakfast or the lunch won't make you lose belly fat, but it can have the opposite effect. You need at least three meals every day - a powerful breakfast, a light lunch and a healthy dinner not later than 7pm. Another thing to put into practice is drinking more water - water intake is actually on top of the list of foods and drinks which can flatten your belly. Here is a list of three types of foods which can help you reach your goal.


Did you know that monounsaturated fatty acids are quite beneficial for belly flattening? These are found in nuts and seeds, avocado, olives and olive oil and dark chocolate. These foods have plenty of calories, so you need to only have small portions and measure the proteins intake. For instance, in just three slices of avocado there are 50 calories, so don't eat more than 3-4 pieces a day. What's great about this group of foods is that it suits various cravings - for sweet, creamy and salty. Just make sure that you can differentiate between good fats and bad fats - polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are both good for you.


In order to flatten your belly, you need to consume carbohydrates that are rich in fiber and other nutrients. Sources of these are Quinoa, Farro, sweet potato and yam. Lighter sources are berries, fruits and vegetables. Eat oranges as they have less sugar than apples and pears, but more vitamin C, beta carotene and fiber. Choose leafy vegetables such as collard greens and spinach. Eat berries for more energy and for antioxidants.


The most popular source of protein (especially for breakfast) is the egg. Buy brown eggs which are rich in Omega-3 and eat scrambled or hard-boiled. Reduce the amount of yolk as the best nutrients for your figure are in the white. You can also east oatmeal, fish and chicken - these are perfect belly flattening meat sources. Other good fish is salmon, tilapia and halibut. Eat almonds (full of highly absorbable protein), yogurt (low in sugar) and cottage cheese.

If you're tired of annoying fad diets that only wear you out and make you gain even more weight in the end, you can read on. After following different pieces of advice on how to lose weight, I realized that the golden rule of starting a food regime is: avoiding diets that promise wonders.

There are some ways you can lose weight faster, but doctors and nutritionists generally advise that losing up to 2.5 pounds per week is the right amount for someone who wants to lose and maintain weight healthily. This might sound disappointing for people who need to lose a lot of weight, because it will take them months. But if you want to do it right, this is the way.

5 Simple Rules That Will Help You Get Rid of That Extra Fat

1) Drink two glasses of room-temperature water as soon as you wake up. Wait for 45 minutes before you eat breakfast, but don't skip it. If you can't bear drinking so much water on an empty stomach, there's an alternative solution: eat one apple instead.

2) Drink lots of water throughout the day. This is VERY important. Water helps you get rid of toxins and it postpones hunger.

3) Try to eat 5-6 portions of food throughout the day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 2-3 snacks (the snacks can be yogurt, fruit, salad, soup; no junk food allowed). Don't eat more than one piece of bread per meal.

4) Make sure you don't eat dinner after 7 PM. If you're really very hungry later than that, drink a cup of plain yogurt or eat a small piece of non-fat cheese, a cucumber, a carrot, etc.

5) Avoid sugars as much as you can. The ideal solution would be to completely ban them from your food regime. You'll probably lose weight the most once you stop eating sweets altogether. If you absolutely cannot stay away from sugar, eat dark chocolate.

If you can also squeeze in some 45-60 minute exercises or daily walks, your body will be very thankful.

This is not too complicated to follow. Unlike some diets, there are no strict rules or specific meal descriptions here, so you are free to plan your own meals, but try to use as much fruits and vegetables as you can. Plain yogurt is very healthy and good for weight loss, remember that. And, drink water. The process is slow but it's proven it works, and it's very rewarding after a month or two.

If you don't like weight loss programs and tricks, then below are some easy and nice tips to energize your body and reach your goal of fitness.

1. Spice up Your Menus

One and the most common complaint about diet is that choosing food which is healthy for the body is a hard task. Everyone seems to advise differently and the person willing to do dieting is left in a whirlwind. Further, to complicate the matter, if there are other family members in the house, preparing a separate meal daily to lose weight seems like an unachievable task.

However, you have to work hard on dieting if you want to lose weight consistently and if you are sick of eating the same thing again and again, you should update the recipe knowledge bank with new idea. Going online will be a big help as there are recipe websites filled with ideas of food for people looking to lose weight.

Try to search for meals and snacks that are easy to make as well as healthy. It is not necessary to give up everything for weight loss. You can still have those delicious sauces and herbs provided they are made with low calories and fat.

2. Shop from Some New Stores

Try to change your daily shop weekly food purchasing. If you can search for new stores, it can bring you some more varieties of fresh foods which might not be available in the previous shop. If there are no shops nearby except for the local grocery store, you can search for them online or even purchase online. Or, you can earmark stores located a bit far and you can make bi-monthly or monthly trips to get the essentials.

3. Treat Yourself!

It is not at all necessary to starve yourself in the dieting process to lose weight. Offer yourself treats for accomplished goals or targets to remain motivated.

For instance, promise yourself a piece of Belgian chocolate if you have low calorie diet consistently for 10 days or buy yourself a new yoga CD if you are able to survive on salad diet for 15 days. Make such pointers and treat yourself once the target is achieved.


You should always keep in mind that motivation in every step is necessary to achieve weight loss constantly and successfully. You should always try to motivate yourself about what you have planned with regards to weight loss and dieting.
