They’re probably the scariest two words you could ever hear a doctor utter: prostate cancer.
A guy hears that, and it sends his power of reasoning into a tailspin.
Suddenly, he’s making a whole mess of bad decisions. He’ll panic into doing just about ANYTHING his doctor orders — including rushing into a hormone-robbing treatment.
It’s technically called “androgen deprivation therapy,” but let’s call it what it REALLY is: chemical castration.
You get to keep all of your body parts, but this “treatment” cuts off something even more important: your production of testosterone.
And once your manly hormones vanish, there’s not much left of what makes you a man. As a result, things stop working “down there.”
But what it does to you downstairs is nothing compared to what it can do upstairs, because new research shows how this unnecessary therapy can rot your brain faster than an hour of reality TV.
For a long time, men who’ve had ADT have complained about “brain fog” and memory loss, but there haven’t been any studies to back up their reports. Besides, if you’re an older prostate cancer patient, most docs just assume your brain problems are from age rather than androgen.
You know what happens when you ASSume, right?
Well, now the research is in — and it turns out, you are 88 percent more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease if you have the androgen faucet switched off than if you don’t.
According to a new study in The Journal of Clinical Oncology, the longer the treatment, the higher the risk. And if you have ADT for a year or more, your risk DOUBLES.
Even worse, ADT doesn’t take its time to waste your brain — it puts you in the fast lane to brain rot, with the study finding that Alzheimer’s takes hold within just three years!
Docs will tell you androgen deprivation is crucial for more advanced cases of prostate cancer, but that’s just baloney.
A 2008 study found seniors given ADT for prostate cancer had a HIGHER rate of death than men who skipped or delayed treatment — maybe because the treatment has also been linked to heart disease and diabetes.
Gentlemen, the time to use your noodle is BEFORE you agree to surrender your manhood. History has shown that modern mainstream medicine has been largely powerless against aggressive tumors that can kill you — and most prostate cancers are harmless and need no treatment at all.
Your best bet is to seek the help of a naturopathic physician experienced in cancer care who can recommend the right testosterone level for you. Find one at the American College for Advancement in Medicine www.acam.org.
