Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect Canadian people with prostates. One in nine people who have prostates will be diagnosed in their lifetime.

Prostate cancer can take a long time to grow. Some individuals who develop prostate cancer may live for many years without it being detected. Screening is crucial to finding the disease early. Most early-stage prostate cancer can be treated successfully.

If you have a prostate, speak with your health care provider about being screened.

Here is a video to help you understand prostate cancer. https://youtu.be/A8HS7cwNmLc

During #OvarianCancerAwareness month, we will share information related to the identification, diagnosis, treatment and management of this disease.

If you have any concerns about risk factors for ovarian cancer, speak with your health care provider.

Go Green – Low-Flow Toilets πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

A standard toilet can use up to 31 liters of water per flush, and we flush on average 5 times a day! This means that we use up to 100 liters of clean water in one day simply by flushing the toilet!

Changing the amount of water your toilet uses is easy and cost-friendly! Here are some ideas on how to do it:

βœ”οΈ Install an adjustable flapper which gives your toilet the appropriate amount of water it needs. You can save up to 11 liters of water per flush!
βœ”οΈ Try tank bags! They displace some water, reducing the amount of water needed to refill the tank! You can save up to 3 liters of water per flush!
βœ”οΈ Use a cycle diverter which diverts water back to the tank once the bowl is full! You can save 3 liters or more per flush!

Here are some additional tips to make the most of your toilet water usage:

πŸ’§ Many utility companies provide these devices to customers for free! Give yours a call!
πŸ’§ If you feel comfortable, you don’t necessarily need to flush every time. If it’s yellow, you can let it mellow!
πŸ’§ Any of these techniques do not mean much if you have a leaky toilet, so check for leaks every now and then!

We’ve been bringing you some ways to be mindful of both your health and the health of the planet. In September, we will be challenging you to use alternative ways to get where you need to go.

We understand that there may be barriers that prevent folks from using alternative methods of transportation. That’s why we want to hear from you!
What type of alternative transportation would you like to use? Riding a bike or longboard, walking, carpooling or using public transport? And what prevents you from using them?

Go Green - Watering Plants πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Overwatering your plants can be as unhelpful as not watering them enough.

When you water your plants during a sunny or windy day, the water evaporates too quickly, and the roots cannot absorb the water they need. Temperatures, humidity and wind are lower at night, making this a perfect time to water your plants.

Other ways to make the most of your water can include:

Placing wide-mouthed containers outside to collect rainwater.

Saving water from the kitchen to use in your garden

Using shower or bathwater on your plants*

Planting native species don't need as much water, and many can help with pollination

*Watering with bathwater where you used natural shampoos and soaps can actually be beneficial in your garden. Spray on the leaves of your flower plants to prevent aphids. Water with regular soap should only be used on ornamental plants. #ecotips

Go Green! - Reducing Medication Intake πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

*Please speak with your health care provider before considering any changes to your medication.

Eating a more #plantrich diet can help you reduce your intake of medications and supplements, and the side effects they might have. Eating more veggies, fruit, beans, peas, lentils, soybeans, seeds, and nuts has been proven very beneficial to cope with chronic diseases (especially heart disease) and to manage conditions such as high blood pressure, high blood sugars, or high cholesterol.

And, by reducing your medication intake, you will be helping the #earth as the pharmaceutical industry is one of the planet’s greatest carbon emitters. Eating a plant-rich diet is one of the most powerful individual contributions to face climate change.

Some common concerns about nutritional intake with a plant-rich diet include:

βœ… #Protein:

Rice with beans, hummus with whole wheat pita, soy products, and quinoa are rich in protein.

βœ… #Iron:

Kidney beans, black beans, soybeans, spinach, raisins, cashews, oatmeal, cabbage, and tomato juice are high in iron.

βœ… #Calcium and #VitaminD:

Tofu, mustard and turnip greens, bok choy, kale, soy milk, and cereal grains are chock full of calcium and vitamin D.

Go Green – Reducing Grocery Costs πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Eating healthier doesn’t have to increase your costs. By making small tweaks, you can eat healthier and stay on budget!

Prepping before you grocery shop can help to save $$$ and eat healthier. Here are some tips:

🌽 Make a grocery list and stick to it. Plan your meals and make a grocery list based on the ingredients. You will buy only what you need and reduce impulse purchases.

πŸ«‘ Go for sales and compare prices. You can use flyers, coupons, apps, or websites for deals on foods that are on your list. Β 

πŸ₯’ Buy veggies and fruits that are in season. Buying fresh produce in your local market is often cheaper, fresher and tastier. You also can freeze your produce to use when it is not in season. Β 

πŸ₯¦ Compare nutrition facts to choose products that are lower in sodium, sugars and saturated fat. Β 

πŸ… Beans, lentils, chickpeas, and other legumes are excellent options to supply you with the protein you need. Β  Β 

πŸ₯• Stay away from processed food. This kind of food is typically low in nutritional value, and exceeds your recommended intake of sodium, sugars, and saturated fat.
