The prostate is one of the most vital glands that is part of the reproductive system in all males. The prostate is a small gland in men that helps make semen. Placed just below the bladder in front of the rectum, it encloses around the tube that carries urine and semen out of the body. It tends to grow larger as you get older. Since the prostate is a delicate organ, it can be affected. One of the most common conditions that affect the prostate is prostate enlargement.
Benign prostate enlargement (BPE) is the medical term to describe an enlarged prostate. Those suffering from this condition may experience a weak urinary stream. In some cases, it can lead to infection, bladder stones and lessened kidney function. Prostate enlargement squeezes the urethra and limits the flow of urine. That is why every man out there needs to be knowledgeable about the risk factors.
Certain foods can cause prostate enlargement. Some of them include;
Alcohol can damage the prostate due to its high amount of ethanol. Alcohol can thwart the ability of the prostate muscle to relax, further irritating the bladder and making benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) worse. Alcohol can also cause inflammation in different parts of the body which makes it a serious risk factor for prostate enlargement, especially when abused. You must know that excess alcohol can also damage some vital organs in the body hence avoid it.
2. Red meat
