Almost 240,000 men will get prostate cancer in 2013.1 It tends to develop in men over the age of fifty. By the time they hit 80, more than half of all American men have some cancer in their prostate glands.

Luckily, prostate cancer is not a death sentence. The survival rates are high. But it doesn’t always have noticeable symptoms. It can take 10, 20, even 30 years for a tumor to get big enough to cause problems.2 And when a doctor tries to treat that tumor…we’re talking pain, incontinence, impotence, and more. Even heart attacks.

You can help prevent prostate cancer by eating a diet high in antioxidants. The kind you get from vegetables and spices.

We’ve found one specific spice—a powerful antioxidant— that stops prostate cancer in its tracks.

This spice, popular in Asian cooking, makes cancer cells commit suicide. Even better…it keeps normal cells safe and doesn’t harm bone marrow tissue. That’s a far cry from chemo drugs. They destroy everything in their path including healthy cells.

This familiar spice cut cancerous tumors in half in just 8 weeks…

Ginger adds a zing to dishes and a natural painkiller. Ginger works just as well as NSAIDs in fighting inflammation and pain. The next time your arthritis is acting up or you’re sore from working out add a little ginger to your diet.

A new study shows ginger fights prostate cancer. It reduces tumors by 50 percent and slows their growth by over 60 percent.3

Researchers tested whole ginger extract. That’s key. Most studies focus on one compound in ginger at a time.

“I did a lot of background research, and found several published papers on ginger, but discovered that there was nothing much done on the whole extract, especially in prostate cancer,” said study author Vibhuti Sharma.

It’s not one single compound doing all the work. Ginger contains several compounds with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-tumor properties.

Another study published in Nutrition and Cancer found that ginger’s phytochemicals work together to inhibit prostate cancer.4 It’s when they are all put together that they produce impressive results.

You can find fresh ginger in the produce section of your grocery store. You could steep it in boiling water to make ginger tea, or use it to flavor almost any meal.

And speaking of prostate health…if your doctor is pressuring you to get a PSA test—go here first. The PSA test has been labeled “one of the largest failures in modern medicine.” Before you think about going for the test, discover the nine natural secrets that can save your manhood from destruction.
