Testosterone has always been thought to cause prostate cancer. In this article I'm going to show you it (and DHT) is protective.

Yes definitely. But people with higher T have less inflammation (T is anti-inflammatory). Another win for T.Seems plausible. However, taking another step back, it may be that the etiology of prostate cancer begins with (occult) urinary tract infections and chronic inflammation.
I think Ray's position was that prostate cancer is estrogen driven.I am pretty sure I gave myself prostate cancer (it is not in our history with our males) with copious amounts of soy lattes when I was 48 to 50 years old. I was lactose intolerant so I switched soy not realizing that natural milk did not produce lactose intolerance. We caught the cancer before it escaped the prostate gland and I got rid of the gland. I believe it was the estrogen from the soy and low testosterone that exposed me to the prostate cancer.
Of course all of my doctors told me that I was wrong. I think there’s been a major effort starting in the last century to reduce the testosterone levels of American males. I notice the Chinese don’t do that.
I have done TRT for 16 years and I have no issues. It’s essential to life for me. I also have a zero calcium score of my heart arteries which I credit 40 years of regular exercise as well as the protection of serum testosterone.
