Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
As a new study shows a connection between eating deep fried foods and prostate cancer; The Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) mission is to improve the quality of men’s lives by supporting research and disseminating information that educates and empowers patients, families and the medical community about prostate cancer.
A new study performed by leading scientists in the prostate cancer field has uncovered that regular consumption of deep-fried foods such as doughnuts, french fries, and fried chicken are now shown to be associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer. This phenomenon has shown that the correlation leans towards to more aggressive forms of the disease.
In 2013, it is estimated that 29,720 men will die from the disease and 238,590 new cases will be diagnosed. With this in mind, PCRI has dedicated several resources to those interested at all in prostate cancer for 2013. PCRI provides many communications tools to accomplish this mission. PCRI programs and services include:
Helpline – The support line staff’s purpose is to help the patient understand his diagnosis and his treatment options.
Insights Newsletter – PCRI produces a free quarterly newsletter containing articles from leading experts to educate, inform and empower the prostate cancer community about the latest advances in prostate cancer. Circulation is over 20,000.
Conferences – Every September, PCRI Conferences bring together patients, caregivers, physicians and institutional supporters for interactive sessions and lectures. The video-recorded presentations are used at support group meetings around the world.
Website – In 1998, the PCRI was an early adopter of the Internet as an educational tool. The website provides over 5000 pages of information intended to assist a newly-diagnosed or advanced patient to understand the biology and extent of their prostate cancer empowering them with knowledge about the best options available.
PCRI was founded in 1996 by internationally recognized prostate cancer oncologists Mark C. Scholz, MD and Stephen B. Strum, MD, with support from Daniel Freeman Hospital Foundation. The Prostate Cancer Research Institute is a charitable not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of men’s lives by supporting research and disseminating information that educates and empowers patients, families and the medical community.
