This is the most-neglected, least-understood disease of men in the United States. It strikes more men than either prostate cancer or prostate enlargement. It strikes men at younger ages. It lasts longer. And it can be one of the most miserable diseases inflected on men, although not considered cause of death. Some men will tell you that if it doesn't kill them, it is only too real as destroying what life is all about.

The following example illustrates the point.

John Garst wrote us from Athens, Georgia, years ago how he got sick with prostatitis at age 33. still has it at age 63. He had seen a doctor on average 8 times every year for 30 years…including times contemplating the release of suicide. Garst estimates prostatitis has cost him more than $270,000.

Urologists estimate that one in every four men who see a doctor about a problem involving the penis, urethra, testicles, prostate, bladder, or kidneys is suffering from one of three types of prostatitis.

In spite of the terrible toll it takes on men's lives, and the vast number of men suffering from prostatitis, research of this disease does not exist in terms of any realistic purposes.

If you read our Special Reports on Prostatitis, you probably will know more about it than 95% of the U.S. public! We urge you to click on “newsletter,” and get both of our UPDATE newsletters on prostatitis.
