Debate about Prostate Screening
article in the Telegraph
"Doctors are divided over the benefits of offering widespread screening for prostate cancer, with many believing it could leave thousands of men at no real danger of dying from the disease with erection problems and incontinence."
It's good that the downside of screening is being considered. Too often, screening is advocated as though it is always a good thing.
I suppose the comparable screening for women is mammograms for breast cancer detection. As well as sometimes detecting cancer that needs to be treated, it sometimes results in false positives, leading to the stress and anxiety, and sometimes to surgery for cancers that were not really sufficiently large/serious to warrant surgery.
Reducing salt intake reduces the likelihood of developing breast cancer and some other cancers.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, stroke, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs, hunger or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
