Harvard University warning: If your father or brother has prostate cancer, you’re twice as likely to develop the disease as a man with no family history!

That’s because family history is the strongest risk factor for prostate cancer, reports The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre.

While there’s nothing you can do to lower your genetic risk, there are other factors you can work on.

Prostate cancer prevention 101: Lower your risk with smart lifestyle choices

The first thing you should concentrate on is your diet. This because evidence shows that choosing a low fat diet may reduce your risk of prostate cancer.

“In studies men who ate the highest amount of fat each day had an increased risk of prostate cancer. While this association doesn't prove that excess fat causes prostate cancer, reducing the amount of fat you eat each day has other proven benefits, such as helping you control your weight and helping your heart. To reduce the amount of fat you eat each day, limit fatty foods or choose low-fat varieties,” reveals the Mayo Clinic.

In addition, you should limit your sugary drink and alcohol intake suggests the World Cancer Research Fund in its lifestyle recommendations for prostate cancer risk reduction.

And don’t forget to have more sex and stay active. Doing these two things could cut your risk down by as much as 61%. 

There you have it: If you have a history of prostate cancer in your family, you need to be careful. Schedule regular check-ups and start your prostate cancer prevention plan today.
