Help protect against prostate cancer with zinc…

by , 21 August 2013

Cadmium is a toxic heavy metal that somehow finds its way into our bodies. If you're a smoker or second-hand smoker, you get a daily dose of it. It's also an environmental pollutant - pumped into the air by industries, burning coal and household wastes.

Once in the air, cadmium can travel long distances, eventually landing on ground or water. When you eat fish (especially shellfish) or veggies and fruit, you often take in a little cadmium. And it gets worse...

According to the US Department of Health and Human Resources, “Cadmium stays in the body a very long time and can build up from many years of exposure to low levels”.

Cadmium is not good news – especially for men…

Cadmium is believed to cause prostate cancer. But, there is some good news. Add a little zinc and you may be able to change everything...

To test whether zinc can protect the prostate from cadmium-induced prostate cancer, US researchers from the University of Rochester Medical Centre collected records from the 2001-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

Over 1,300 men over the age of 40 who participated in survey were tested to determine their prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels - a marker that tends to rise when prostate cancer is present. Although, the PSA is not an entirely reliable marker for prostate cancer, consistently high PSA levels are a red flag.

The researchers found records for 422 men who had been PSA tested and also met two additional criteria: 1) Measurement of urinary cadmium concentrations and 2) Assessment of zinc intake based on dietary questionnaires.

Zinc shown to counteract cadmium poisoning…

Analysis of these records revealed PSA levels were significantly higher among participants with higher than average cadmium levels - and lower than average zinc intake.

They concluded in their report: “These findings suggest a protective effect of zinc intake on cadmium- induced prostatic injury”.

Zinc – a benefit – even if you don’t have a prostate…

Epidemiologist, Edwin van Wijngaarden, the lead author of the Rochester study, reported that zinc prompts the body to produce a protein that binds to cadmium and helps move this toxin out of the body.

Zinc also helps boost your immune system, repair damaged tissues, inhibits abnormal clotting that contributes to cardiovascular disease, helps maintain healthy vision and is essential for DNA reproduction and repair.

Dietary sources of zinc include: Cabbage, red meat, poultry, beans, nuts, whole grains and dairy products. And ironically, the best dietary source for zinc – oysters – is also a source of cadmium.
