Prostate cancer is the second biggest killer of men in the UK. Partly due to us ( men ) living longer that this problem occurs. However many men over the age of 55 do experience BPH or enlargement of the prostate which can lead to problems in frequency of urination noticed by more frequent night visits to the toilet or acute need to urinate. At its worst BPH can cause real problems in acute urine retention requiring a catheter or an operation ( TURPS ) to surgically reduce the size. So it is a condition that causes a lot of problems and not to be taken lightly.

Next day I was buying a birthday card and the lady at the till asked me to donate to prostate cancer reserach by buying a pen and then on Saturday there was an article in the UK newspaper, the Daily Mail , asll about LYCOPENE . When the Mail publish NEWS on health there can be a surge in demand
