Cardiovascular Factors Linked to Prostate Cancer

Characterized by central obesity, hypertension, and adverse glucose and insulin metabolism, Metabolic Syndrome is a condition associated with increased risk of type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  Christel Haggstrom, from Umea University (Sweden), and colleagues examined data on 289,866 men enrolled in the Metabolic Syndrome and Cancer Project.  Over the course of 12 years, nearly 6,700 of the men were diagnosed with prostate cancer. Of these men, about 1,000 died from the disease.  The team calculated that the men with the highest body-mass index (BMI) were at 36% higher risk of dying from prostate cancer. Those with high blood pressure had a 62% greater risk of death from the disease. And men with the highest combined score on all metabolic factors were more likely to die from prostate cancer.  Pointing out that: “no evidence of an association between high levels of metabolic factors and the risk of prostate cancer,” the study authors warn that: “high BMI, elevated blood pressure, and a composite score of all metabolic factors were associated with an increased risk of death from prostate cancer."

Physically active adults have higher concentration skills, which may help maintain memory and combat dementia. A study by researchers at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (USA) found that sedentary lifestyles directly contribute to the decline in cognitive abilities and quality of sleep as we age. In this study, men and women ages 67 to 86, who were functionally independent, participated in a two-week study involving a regimen of 30 minutes of mild physical activity, 30 minutes of social interaction, and a final 30 minutes of mild to moderate physical activity...
