You can kill mice with hand grenades… There is still a big push to get more men on the dangerous prostate med, Avodart, by claiming it can reduce harmless cancers by 23 percent. While this med may actually reduce the non-life-threatening form of prostate cancer, this med will actually CAUSE deadly cancer! Avodart does work on the non-aggressive, non-life threatening cancer but another study found that this drug increases the risk of developing unusual and highly aggressive cancers. Prostate cancer is highly over-treated in the first place. You won’t find me rushing out for a prostate exam and PSA count.
