Certain risk factors may predispose a person to prostate cancer. These include:
Age: Sixty percent of cases of prostate cancer arise in men over 65 years of age. The disease is rare in men under 40.
Race or ethnicity: African-American men and Jamaican men of African ancestry are diagnosed with prostate cancer more often than are men of other races and ethnicities. Asian and Hispanic men are less likely to develop prostate cancer than are non-Hispanic white males.
Family history: Prostate cancer can run in families. A man whose father or brother has or had prostate cancer is twice as likely to develop the disease. If several family members have had prostate cancer, and particularly if it was found at a young age in those relatives, the risk may be even higher.
Nationality: Prostate cancer is more common in North America, Europe especially northwestern countries in Europe, the Caribbean, and Australia. It is less common in Asia, Africa, and South and Central America. Multiple factors, such as diet and lifestyle, may account for this.
Genetic factors: Mutations in a portion of the DNA called the BRCA2 gene can increase a man's risk of getting prostate cancer, as well as other cancers. This same mutation in female family members may increase their risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer. However, very few cases of prostate cancer can be directly attributed to presently identifiable genetic changes. Other inherited genes associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer include: RNASEL, BRCA 2, DNA mismatch genes, and HoxB13.
Other factors: Diets high in red meats and fatty foods and low in fruits and vegetables appear to be associated with a higher risk of developing prostate cancer. Obesity is also linked to a higher risk of the disease.
Smoking, a history of sexually transmitted diseases, a history of prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), and a history of vasectomy have NOT been proven to play a role

TicaBus Safety: Is Tica Bus safe?
We traveled on TicaBus from San Jose, Costa Rica to Managua, Nicaragua, where we took a local bus to Granada.
We traveled from Managua north through Honduras to San Salvador, El Salvador.
We traveled from San Salvador to Guatemala City.
Tica Bus also goes into Mexico, but we didn’t go that far north.
There was plenty to see in Guatemala.
On the way back, we went from Guatemala City to San Salvador, San Salvador to Managua, where we again took the local bus to Granada. However, the TicaBus picked us up in Granada to go back to San Jose, and our most recent trip on TicaBus was to take the bus from San Jose to David, Panama.
We felt safe the whole time on TicaBus.
*******www***staricanhomelots****/GRANDVIEW_ESTATES.php presents this episode of Peepobs travels.
Today Peepob is on location at Grand View Estates, Costa Rica giving a short video tour of the guesthouse and including some surrounding views.
The guesthouse is situated on a hill with great views of the Caribbean Ocean, lush greenery, and rolling hills and mountains. You can even see Nicaragua from the higher elevations.
After a great night sleep I enjoyed the early morning sounds of the macaws and howler monkeys.
Grand View Estates is a gated community with a resort style feeling. This residential real estate development consists of 640 acres in the hill country of Costa Rica.
It is located off the main highway between San Jose and Puerto Limon on the Caribbean side. With a view to the future the owners have invested substantially into the infrastructure here.
It has its own commercial center, a community center, equestrian center, guess house and adventure parks.
The home lots are huge compared to other Costa Rica home lots for sale. Home lots range from 1 to 5 acres with prices starting at $50,000.
All the home lots are constructed ready with roads, gutters, street lights, water + electricity.
The Pacific side of Costa Rica boomed beginning in the 80's but now it is the Caribbean area attracting the big money from the government, private investors and the Chinese.
Grand View Estates appears situated in the path of progress, as well as being close to fun and adventurous activities such as river rafting, zip-lining, sport fishing, beaches, surfing, scuba diving, nature preserves, shopping and night clubs.
While visiting Grand View Estates I enjoyed seeing many homes under construction and marveled at the unique designs and quality going into each residence.
They must be doing something right to have sold out almost the entire project in less than 3 years.
