Fun With Your Prostate

Posted: Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Getting men to pay attention to their own health isn’t easy. When given the chance to read Maxim or schedule a prostate gland exam with the doc (yup, it’s the one with the finger up the butt), I think we all know which is more appealing to the dudes. A few different organizations are wisely using things that men love — drinking beer and growing mustaches, namely — to get them thinking about screening this very important male gland. Pints for Prostates uses the glory of hops to get men to think about getting screened. Some recent studies that swigging beer is actually good for your prostate will prolly help their cause as well! Movember Australia also focuses on prostate health, and raises awareness by getting the gents to grow a moustache in November (Australia’s men’s health month, American prostate health month is in September). So even though it’s months away, our prostate stopped shaving and donned a nice ‘stache in honor of this awesome organization.

prostateHere’s a couple studies sure to be popular with men — both coffee and beer have been tapped as possible ways to help prevent prostate cancer. ABC News wisely notes that these studies tend to get more attention than they deserve because people want to believe them. One doc wondered why prostate cancer rates weren’t already lower since American men have never shied away from either coffee or beer. Note that exercise has also shown prostate cancer fighting properties, but who’s excited about that? {via USA Today}
