THIS Condition Increases Prostate Risk 5X

Prostate cancer kills thousands of American men every year… many of them seniors.

In fact, this disease is so prolific that a new case is diagnosed every three minutes. 

And that’s why you’re doing everything you can to make sure you’re not the next victim.

But according to a new study, having a certain condition makes you 5 times more likely to develop prostate cancer. 

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to lower your risk.

Miserable.

That’s the best word I can think of to describe inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It’s characterized by symptoms like diarrhea, bloating, and cramps.

But this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill stomach ache. Flare ups can be severe enough to send you to the hospital and make you miss out on life for weeks on end.

Now there’s another side effect IBD sufferers need to be aware of. 

It dramatically increases your risk of developing prostate cancer.

It’s not unusual for IBS sufferers to have an elevated PSA. This is the same marker that can be an indication of prostate cancer.

This is likely due to the high levels of inflammation associated with the disease. But whatever the cause, the high PSA levels are so common in inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome that doctors tend to just ignore them.

And that could be a HUGE mistake.

Because according to a recent study, men with inflammatory bowel disease are more than 5-times more likely to develop prostate cancer.

There are a few potential reasons for the increased risk.

As the name implies, inflammatory bowel diseases overload the body with inflammation – which is known to increase cancer risk. 

But the drugs used to treat it could be the REAL problem.

IBD occurs when the body’s immune system is overactive, so doctors prescribe immune suppressing drugs like chemotherapy.

The problem is that by suppressing the immune system, you’re also hindering the only protection your body has against cancer cells!

The immune system has cells that act like snipers, picking off cancer cells as they pop up in the body. Suppressing the immune system is like taking the gun away.

This study tells us a few things. 

First, if your PSA level is high, don’t ignore it. 

Second, if you’re dealing with IBD, talk to your doctor about alternatives that don’t involve taking away your body’s first line of defense.

And at the top of last list is CBD oil… aka, medical marijuana.

One study showed that when people with moderately severe Crohn’s disease took cannabis oil, they went into remission!

Cannabis is legal in most states now. Talk to your doctor to see if it could be an option for you..

To a brighter day,
