    Lean Body Mass My Lower Prostate Cancer Risk


    Interesting article - It goes on to say that the higher presence of androgens may be a key factor:

    Sorry if this is old news and I'm sure we kinda figured it anyway!

    I haven't read the article yet, but i'd wager to say that increased LBM would typically mean decreased FM...men with higher bf% have higher levels of estrogen, and estrogen is slowly but surely being found to be a culprit when it comes to prostate cancer.
