5 Cheap Ways to Keep Yourself Safe from Prostate Cancer
When you're past 40 or 50, have your prostate checked regularly. It's at this age bracket when the ailment starts to develop for some men. But there are ways to prevent it from happening as you have your prostate gland checked.

Mind you, these are cheap ways to keep yourself safe from prostate cancer--cheap health and fitness with middle income budget.

1. First is pray for good health. I'm always serious about putting God on top of my health and fitness program. I pray for good health everyday--for me and my family. I think of God as both my Doctor and Medicine--in fact, my health Supplement, body, soul and spirit. Without God, there is no health of any kind. So, get close with God.

2. Avoid alcoholic drinks. Beverages like liquor and beer can help trigger prostate inflammation that can lead to prostate cancer. My dad's doctors always limited his daily beer intake because they stressed how alcohol can badly affect the prostate.

3. Avoid too much meat. Meat is often costly anyway, and contributes to your susceptibility to prostate cancer. So avoid having it regularly. The less, the better. Well, it's difficult to get rid of meat altogether because it's sometimes more costly to eat vegetables on a regular basis. Few carinderias offer vegan menus. What I do is eat lots and lots more vegetables and fruits whenever I can (and that's often) so that when I eat some meat it's somewhat neutralized. And I prefer tofu and fish to beef and pork meat.

4. Avoid any inflammatory food. Food that causes inflammation is a definite no-no, like meat, processed meat, fatty food, junk food, canned food, and alcoholic drinks, to name a few. Inflammatory food and drinks are among the top causes of prostate cancer. If sometimes you don't have any choice but to eat these foods, try your best to counter them with organic fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants like guyavano, guavas, carrots, broccoli, celery, cilantro, kinchay, onion springs, bananas, purple corn, and natural food rich in Vitamin C.

I often take fresh carrot juice and sugarcane juice. A glass (about 350 ml) only costs P60 at the grocery area of SM North.

5. Take enough Vitamin C. When I say enough, I don't mean just 3 oranges a day. I'm talking something like 35 freshly squeezed kalamansi each early morning. Or 7 lemons or 10 dalandan fruits. Better yet, take non-acidic sodium ascorbate regularly, like Vital C (what I take).

Remember, Vitamin C is a super anti-inflammatory antioxidant that destroys free radicals and carcinogens. We all need enough Vitamin C each day. It's very effective to help men prevent prostate cancer.


  1. Yup! As a matter of fact, 35 is the minimum. The recommended by some organic health experts I know is 50 pieces of fresh kalamansi squeezed and juiced first thing in the morning. This results to radical detoxification. I've tried it and it got rid of a lot of black stuff from my digestive system. A good digestive system improves the immune system, and that helps keep you safe from ailments like prostate cancer.

    However, if you think 35 or 50 are too many, then by all means, go with whatever seems comfortable for you. And always seek your doctor's approval first.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
