Remember to:

  • Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
  • Limit your intake of fatty foods and red meats.
  • Schedule an annual prostate exam. Catching problems early is vital.
  • Watch your alcohol intake. Studies have shown that beer can raise prolactin levels in the body, which in turn can eventually lead to prostate enlargement.
