Researchers examine relationship between prostate cancer and high cholesterol

A study involving 114 black men found that 50% of men with urological problems or at risk of prostate cancer had high cholesterol. Researchers therefore claim to have found a link between high cholesterol and bad testosterone. Furthermore, the results indicate that diets containing lots of saturated fats and little fruit and vegetables are strongly associated with cancer and heart disease. Researchers want more screenings to be done in consideration of the link between prostate cancer and high cholesterol.
