SEPTEMBER IS PROSTATE CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. PROSTATE CANCER REMAINS THE SECOND-LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER DEATH IN AMERICAN MEN. THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT FOR MEN - AND THE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM - TO BE INFORMED ABOUT RISKS AND WAYS TO REDUCE THEM. THE MOST CONTROLLABLE RISK FACTOR FOR PROSTATE CANCER IS DIET. A HEALTHY DIET RICH IN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES - ESPECIALLY TOMATOES, WATERMELON, AND PINK GRAPEFRUIT KNOWN FOR THEIR LYCOPENE CONTENT - IS IMPORTANT IN REDUCING RISK. MOST IMPORTANTLY, TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT RISKS AND A SCREENING PLAN
