Just saw it on Yahoo. Coleman first, and then Hopper.

RIP to both.

I rewatched his Nike ads from the late 80's early 90's. Funny stuff.

RIP Great actor. I feel bad that his last day were spent fighting some stupid Bitch in court over his money. What a shame.

I really liked Dennis Hopper. This is sad. A bit early for him, but he was a cool person. I hated Easy Rider. It hasn't aged well at all, but I appreciated what he did for the time. :(

I loved Easy Rider, it was one of those that was for the time period. You had to see it then. I enjoyed Dennis in his subsequent movies. Sad, RIP Dennis.

If celebrity deaths do really come in 3s, I wonder who is next?

RIP to Kansas native Dennis Hopper. Hoosiers is my favorite movie Dennis Hopper acted. His character was just brilliant and really added to the respect Hackman's character had over everybody involved on the basketball team...

Coleman's death was kind of a... well that sucks. But this one really, really, blows. He was all that made Super Mario Bros. and Waterworld tolerable. ****ing sucks to see him gone at only 74 to ****ing prostate cancer.

The better question is, when will proper education help prevent the vast majority of cases of PC, or at least delay it well past the time you die of something else before it becomes an issue?

The whole show typically starts with the gradual decline in your hormone system beginning slowly in the early 30s to early 40s in men as their testosterone levels (and most other hormones) begin to decline in either production and/or increasingly impaired receptivity and activation of said testosterone at the cellular level.

But it is NOT testosterone that causes PC at all as many people and docs still wrongly assume. But rather the culprit is the increased conversion of testosterone to estrogen (namely estradiol and its metabolite estrone) that happens through steadily increased aromatose enzyme conversion of Testo to estrogen as we age.

A process also greatly increased by increases in central body fat and obesity as well as imbibing too much hooch as well as refined carb overload (aka such as high fructose corn syrup which metabolizes just like alcohol to begin with).

Its the excess estrogen in men as we get older that is the essential germinating problem in PC, not Tesotosterone nor even DHT (dihydrotestosterone).

Learning to maintain a healthy 'physiologic' androgen hormone balance through-out life (definitely not supraphysiologic levels as from taking steroid-sized doses), while knowing and then keeping your estrogen levels in a safe and healthy range, is one of the greatest protective mechanisms against the development or PC to begin with, as well as helping to prevent many other health problems. For example, it helps greatly in controlling BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia) as well.

The sad thing is, you'll almost never hear (at least as of yet though enlightenment is slowly starting to happen in many mainstream circles) of a traditional urologist, internist or PC doc who even tests for - or knows how to properly interpret if he does - male estradiol/estrone levels ... and same for total and free testosterone plus SHBG levels as well.

The one caviat is that it's important to make sure there is no active PC going on before starting a testosterone replacement program, if and when you start to need it as you get on in years. As adding testosterone at certain stages of active PC can encourage the PC growth for a period.

The idea is to intervene before PC starts, when establishing and ensuring a balanced testosterone and endocrine system is your safest bet to avoid the beast to begin with, as well as provide a wealth of other benefits to your life, cardiovascular system and well being on top of it all.

Knowledge and a highly skilled Functional Medicine M.D. are pure Gold as you approach your golden years.

My old boss had prostate cancer. I didn't even know until well after the fact, and it was crazy because it seemed everybody knew except me.

I knew he had missed a lot of work for medical purposes, and I knew he would often work standing up because it hurt for him to sit down, but I had no idea till I was flying home for vacation and he's like "hey I'm going downtown, I'll give you a ride to the airport, we just have to stop at the hospital on the way."

I sit in the waiting room for like 20 min, reading Ski Magazine, and he comes out with this huge grin on his face. I asked him how it went and he said "yesssssssss the cancer is in remission." And I'm like WTF, you had cancer?

I know, I know, super cool story.

RIP Hopper. I was a big fan of what he did for the One Campaign. Just an all-around decent guy.
