As we all know, in recent years, among the diseases that are more harmful to men, prostate diseases have taken up an increasing proportion. Such as prostatitis, prostate hypertrophy, prostate calcification, prostate stones, and so on, it is urgent for men to protect the prostate from harm. Let's take a look at some habits that can easily harm the male prostate gland in life.
Nowadays, workers, especially white-collar workers, are almost always sitting day by day. Everyone may know that prolonged sitting can lead to obesity, but did you know that prolonged sitting is also very harmful to the prostate gland. The prostate gland is an accessory gonad that resembles an inverted cone located between the bladder and pelvic floor muscles and encloses the urethra. Its position determines that men largely sit on the prostate, so men who often sit for a long time have a heavier burden on the prostate. Due to pressure, it is easy to cause prostate congestion, accumulation of local metabolites, obstruction of prostate ducts, and poor excretion of glandular fluid, leading to the occurrence of chronic prostatitis.
Due to the need of work, some people drink with customers almost every day, but they should be moderate and drink alcohol without excessive drinking. After entering the body, alcohol will be slowly absorbed by the body, entering the blood and flowing to various parts of the body. The prostate is a very sensitive organ to alcohol, and when stimulated by alcohol, it becomes excited, causing rapid expansion and congestion of local capillaries, causing edema in the cells. The higher the alcohol concentration in the blood, the more severe the swelling of the prostate. If the swelling is not released and relaxed for a long time, it can cause symptoms of inflammation.
Eat spicy food
Due to geographical and other factors, some people may very much like spicy food, and if they don't eat spicy food during the day, they may feel like they don't have a mild taste. However, here is a reminder that eating spicy food should not be excessive. Irritating foods such as scallions, raw garlic, chili peppers, and peppers can cause vasodilation and organ congestion, reduce the resistance of the prostate, and may also allow a large number of bacterial colonies residing in the prostate to grow and reproduce, inducing acute prostatitis, or exacerbating the symptoms of chronic prostatitis. "It is always difficult to control your mouth and stay away from spicy food, which is an important reason for the recurrence of prostatitis in some people.".
Catch a cold
Winter has come, and the weather is gradually turning cold. For our health, we must pay attention to keeping warm, not just the wind and temperature. The prostate is rich in adrenergic receptors, which can easily cause sympathetic nerve excitation when it gets cold, leading to gland contraction, increasing internal pressure in the urethra, and affecting urination. However, difficulty in urination can have adverse effects on the prostate, which can lead to pathological changes in the vicious cycle.
Suffocation of urine
Winter is a season where getting up depends on perseverance, and getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom is more dependent on perseverance. Many people are reluctant to get up in the middle of the cold night to go to the bathroom, resulting in suffocation, which is also the reason for the high incidence of prostate disease in winter. Under low temperature conditions, the excitability of the sympathetic nerve in the prostate would have significantly increased, causing contraction of the prostate gland, causing chronic congestion, increasing pressure in the urethra, aggravating the accumulation of prostate fluid, and easily leading to attacks of prostate disease. If you hold your urine again at this time, the decrease in the number of urinations will lead to slower metabolism, which will further exacerbate the symptoms of prostatitis.
