Men in the United States get prostate cancer more than any other type of cancer except skin cancer. In the United States, about one out of five men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die of it.
The “one biomarker” never pans out because biology is complex and irreducible to a single number.
However, there is one biomarker showing promise as a broad indicator of overall health and fitness: heart rate variability (HRV), or the variation in the intervals between heart beats.
If your heart beats like a metronome, with intervals of identical length between each pulse, you have low heart rate variability; this is “bad.” If your heart beats follow a more fractal pattern, with beat intervals of varying length, you have high heart rate variability; this is “good.” This probably sounds counterintuitive.
Most people assume that a steady, consistent pattern of heart beats is the healthiest.
The British currency has swung around by just over 20pc in the last year, undermining the competitiveness and profitability of Irish exporting companies.

CAM treatments generally are not considered standard medical approaches.
CAM treatments used by prostate cancer patients include certain foods, dietary supplements, herbs, vitamins, and minerals.
This PDQ summary gives general information about using foods and dietary supplements to lower the risk of developing prostate cancer or for treating prostate cancer, its symptoms, or side effects of disease treatment.
It responds to the demands of the organism; it doesn’t follow preordained intervals.
In general, a high HRV indicates dominance of the parasympathetic response, the side of the autonomic nervous system that promotes relaxation, digestion, sleep, and recovery.
