Beware: PSA prostate cancer screening test is a dangerous hoax, warns discoverer of prostate specific antigen

8/27/2013 - Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men.

Although prostate cancer cases increase with age, still,...

PSA screening exposed as complete medical hoax: 99.9 percent of the time it provides no benefit to men

5/7/2013 - The medical-industrial complex is backtracking heavily these days from recommending that men undergo prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests for prostate cancer, as continually emerging evidence reveals the test to be dangerous, inaccurate, and essentially useless for most men.

Prostate cancer screening subjects men to 'substantial harms,' warns one of its key architects

4/15/2013 - Presumably in response to the continued release of independent studies that warn about the uselessness of prostate cancer screenings, the American College of Physicians (ACP) has issued its own alert about the questionable practice. In a recent statement published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine,...

Medical announcement reveals: Almost everything you've been told about prostate cancer is wrong

4/10/2013 - Men, especially after the age of 50, have long been told they need to be screened regularly for the dreaded disease of prostate cancer with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test.

PSA prostate cancer test should be abandoned, warns government task force

6/1/2012 - The verdict is in -- PSA tests for prostate cancer are unreliable, and do not offer men any tangible benefit in lifespan or quality of life. These are the conclusions of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (PSTF), which found that many more men are injured by PSA tests than are helped by it. PSA,...

Another screening fraud exposed: PSA tests do more harm than good

12/31/2010 - Health experts are becoming increasingly vocal in warning that prostate cancer screening may often do more harm than good.

Scientists Find Prostate Cancer Biopsies Often Not Needed

11/23/2009 - This may well be remembered as the year medical "facts" about prostate cancer were shown to be riddled with wrong assumptions and downright myths.

Men not being informed about low benefits and high risks of PSA prostate cancer screening

PSA Screening for Prostate Cancer a Waste of Over-Diagnosis

5/18/2009 - A new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute adds more evidence to the increasingly prevalent belief that regular prostate screenings may lead to more harm than good for older men. Under current recommendations, most men over the age of 50 are advised to regularly undergo a screening...

PSA Screening Pointless for Most Men Over 75

5/15/2009 - Regular prostate screening provides no benefit for the majority of men over the age of 75 and should be discontinued, according to a study conducted by researchers from Johns Hopkins University and published in the Journal of Urology. Because many prostate tumors are very slow growing, many men who...

Hot Peppers Make Prostate Cancer Cells Die and Taste Buds Come to Life

4/19/2009 - Hot peppers are great for spicing up food. They may be even better for keeping the human body feeling in the spice of life.

Hair loss drug may cause prostate cancer to go undetected

12/14/2006 - Merck's popular hair loss drug Propecia may alter the results of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) prostate cancer screening test, which could prevent detection of the disease, according to a new study appearing in the Dec. 5 online edition of the journal Lancet Oncology.

New EPCA-2 prostate cancer test far more accurate than discredited PSA test

8/24/2006 - The prostate specific antigen (PSA) test is the primary method of determining whether a male patient has prostate cancer or not, but it can generate false positives -- elevated levels of PSA without any cancerous cells -- so Johns Hopkins University researchers have developed a test that may be more...

Pepper Component Hot Enough to Trigger Suicide in Prostate Cancer Cells (press release)

8/14/2006 - Capsaicin, the stuff that turns up the heat in jalapeņos, not only causes the tongue to burn, it also drives prostate cancer cells to kill themselves, according to studies published in the March 15 issue of Cancer Research. According to a team of researchers from the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer...

Study of obesity in prostate cancer screening uncovers new predictor of disease for overweight men (press release)

7/21/2006 - Recent studies suggest that testing blood for prostate specific antigen (PSA) alone does not produce an ideal predictor of prostate cancer, and emerging data suggest this is especially true for obese men. A recent study by Oregon Health & Science University Cancer Institute researchers shows that a...
