Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States. While there is no 100% effective method of preventing prostate cancer, there are things you can do to reduce your risk. Prostate health is important, and there are many simple ways to keep your prostate as healthy as possible.


1. Get More Sleep

Sleep is essential, not just for prostate health and cancer prevention, but for all of the processes your body carries out. Good quality sleep (not just a lot of sleep) is key to helping the reproductive system stay healthy and keep producing hormones such as testosterone. Frequent restless nights can lead to a decrease in testosterone and an increase in stress hormones, which can cause problems with prostate growth and regulation.
