The Cavaliers' super point guard Kyrie Irving runs between five and 10 miles every game! But according to a new study, working out does NOT protect even the most active black men from prostate cancer (and they're 40 percent more likely to develop the disease in the first place).

But moderate or heavy exercise does slash the risk for white men by 53 percent. And among guys who get prostate cancer, exercise reduces the risk of having the most aggressive type by 13 percent - but again, only for white men. (But don't stop working out, Kyrie - for ALL men, fitness does decrease heart disease, depression, stress, and other cancers.) So what's going on?
 
It seems genetics may be tipping the scales. But more research is needed to figure out why black men are more at risk. What do we know? Every guy can benefit from certain lifestyle choices that reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
 
So, make this three-pointer:
 
1. Start with 1,000 IU of D-3 daily. When blood levels of D-3 dip, your risk of dying from prostate cancer zooms up.
 
2. Get friendly with broccoli, other green vegetables, and slow-cooked tomatoes. They're full of nutrients that fight off prostate cancer.
 
3. Avoid red meats, all charred meats, and chicken skin. Eating charbroiled and overcooked meats floods your body with as much of a prostate-damaging carcinogen called PhlP as a pack and a half of cigarettes. Also, eliminate all added sugars and sugar syrups; excess sugar just feeds hungry prostate (and other) cancer cells.
