Research from New Chapter Organics on Prostate Health:
The occurrence of prostate related illness in the West is epidemic. Killing between 40 and 50 thousand annually, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death among men in the U.S. and for the fortunate cancer patients who survive this disease, there are often side effects of treatment that diminish the quality of life. Why is this the case? What can be done? Intense scientific research has recently led to exciting new discoveries on this important medical front. Both treatment and prevention may be within sight as study after study reveal the chemistries at play in the prostate disease process.
A Little Background
Prostate cancer is what is called a multi-stage carcinogenesis, which means it has three distinct phases of development. These phases are 1) initiation, 2) promotion, and 3) progression. Few people know that most men have early expressions of prostate cancer by the time we're in our twenties! That's the initiation phase. It's what comes next that determines whether or not this disease is going to progress in a threatening way. Are the necessary ingredients for tumor promotion in place to make the cancer grow? To put this another way, men don't die from simply getting prostate cancer: mortality is a function of the growth and proliferation of the cancer cells into other organ systems. What makes the localized prostate cancer cells flourish, grow, and spread? That's the real health issue. We are discovering that cancer cells, like any form of living tissue or organism, require a particular nutrient in order to survive. Think of prostate cancer cells as an animal that will eat only one type of food, sort of a malignant rabbit that will eat only essential carrots. No essential carrots, no malignant rabbits. This is a bizarre way of visualizing the cancer cells, but it is actually descriptive of the prostate cancer process.
What if we could pinpoint the particular essential nutrient fundamental for the growth and proliferation of prostate cancer cells? What if we could then determine how the body obtained or manufacturerd that essential cancer nutrient? All that would be left is to determine how best to help the body prevent the production of that essential prostate cancer cell nutrient. In other words, how can we keep the "malignant rabbits" from their indispensable food source? This would be called "chemoprevention" but you can also think of it as starving the cancer cells. Significant research is currently being conducted into the abundance of naturally occurring chemopreventive properties found in hundreds of fresh fruits and vegetables around the world. This rich database is now available to link with discoveries being made on the fronts of medical research.
What is this exciting new research all about?
The Good News: Our bodies produce and process an incredible assortment of chemicals, each of which must be maintained in appropriate balance in order to sustain optimal health. Key to the maintenance of this balance are tiny biological processing factories called enzymes, and one of these, 5 Lipoxygenase (or 5-LO for short) has been shown to be associated with the production of a chemical called 5-HETE, without which cancer cells in the prostate cannot survive. Simply put, 5 HETE is the only food that prostate cancer cells eat it is "essential carrot" for the "malignant rabbits" that want to run wildly throughout the body. What can be done to prevent the body's creation of 5-HETE? It turns out that the 5-LO enzyme metabolizes arachidonic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) into 5-HETE. I
