The following research is given as validation that you can defeat prostate cancer with nutrition and natural compounds. Do not let anyone tell you that nutrition is not powerful medicine and after your PSA levels plummet, that we are only masking the cancer.

Study: Strict diet and exercise stop prostate cancer-   93 men took part in year long study in which half  were randomly assigned to the Ornish diet and lifestyle regimen; the others weren't asked to vary their usual routines. The researchers sent participants' blood samples to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York to measure PSA, or prostate specific antigen, a marker used to track prostate cancer growth. After one full year ALL the men in the diet and life style group were better while ALL the men that were watching and waiting got worse.

Deferred treatment safe for low grade prostate cancer-.  It is not clear whether men diagnosed with low-grade, localized prostate cancer need immediate, aggressive treatment such as radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate gland) or radiation therapy. A group of American and Australian researchers now report that deferring treatment until clear progression of the cancer is evident may be a safe, acceptable alternative Journal of Urology, Vol. 171, April 2004,

Watchful waiting may be best option for prostate cancer This approach, "watchful waiting" or "expectant management", is used extensively and successfully in Europe. Recent studies have shown that there is no clear evidence that prostate surgery improves the overall survival of patients especially older ones. As one doctor put it "most patients die with prostate cancer rather than of it."
Bilgrami, Syed and Greenberg, Bernard R. Why so many operations for localised prostate cancer? The Lancet, Vol. 344, September 10, 1994, pp.

40% OF PROSTATECTOMIES FAIL-close to 40% of men who undergo a radical prostatectomy will have a PSA relapse within two years. This means that they had disease that was outside of the prostate that was not obvious to the surgeon or the pathologist. It means that if the man lives long enough, metastatic disease will kill him. The problem I have is that people are not open and honest about all the controversies, and this extends to people being not open and honest about the treatments, once prostate cancer is diagnosed. Men tend to get railroaded toward radical prostatectomy or to external-beam radiation, or to seed implants. Interview with Otis Brawley, MD

PLANT FLAVINOIDS- found to inhibit PC cell growth, induce apoptosis and inhibit fatty acid syntheses. Research by Dept. of Developmental Biology, Leuven Belgium

LINOLIC ACID can reduce prostate cancer, this is a fatty acid which is found in vegetables. Reported by Reuters news 8-19-2004. The effect of lycopene alone or in association with other antioxidants was studied on the growth of two different human prostate carcinoma cell lines (the androgen insensitive DU-145 and PC-3). It was found that lycopene alone was not a potent inhibitor of prostate carcinoma cell proliferation. However, the simultaneous addition of lycopene together with alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), at physiological concentrations (less than 1 microM and 50 microM, respectively), resulted in a strong inhibitory effect of prostate carcinoma cell proliferation, which reached values close to 90 %. The effect of lycopene with alpha-tocopherol was synergistic and was not shared by beta-tocopherol, ascorbic acid and probucol.

SELENIUM cuts cancer risk by 63% according to a 10 year study. Reported by CNN 6-17-1999 After 13 years of follow-up the researchers concluded that study participants with a plasma selenium level of 0.12-0.19 ppm had a 50% lower incidence of advanced prostate cancer than did men with a level of 0.06-0.09 ppm. The correlation was only apparent in men with a PSA level of more than 4 ng/mL and was particularly strong for those with a baseline (1982) PSA level greater than 10 ng/mL. For these men a high selenium level corresponded to a 70% decrease in the risk of advanced prostate cancer. They conclude that selenium is perhaps not too effective in preventing the initiation of prostate cancer, but that it is highly effective in slowing down tumor progression. They believe that selenium acts by selectively killing off cells whose DNA has been extensively damaged, by inhibiting cellular proliferation, and by its role as a key component of glutathione peroxidase, which protects cells from peroxide damage.

VITAMIN D has been shown to inhibit PC cell growth. University of Colorado research. Vitamin D inhibits prostate cancer- University of Toronto reported the first human trials of a deltanoid (vitamin D compound) that appear to both help fight prostate cancer and to fight that cancer without causing any side effects. The researchers gave all the patients 2,000 units of cholecalciferol (the plain, cheap, simple, natural, available at any health food store, form of vitamin D) every day for up to 21 months. In the majority of men, their PSA either went down or stopped going up, suggesting their prostate cancer either started to regress or remained quiescent!

PLASTIC LINKED TO PC- Component of plastic stimulates growth of certain prostate cancer cells. An estrogen-like chemical commonly used to synthesize plastic food containers has been shown to encourage the growth of a specific category of prostate cancer cell, potentially affecting the treatment efficacy for a subset of prostate cancers. According to a study published in the January 1 issue of Cancer Research, such prostate cancer cells proved to be vulnerable to exposure to the chemical BPA (bisophenol A), an industrial chemical and nonsteroidal environmental estrogen used in the manufacture of food cans, milk container linings, food storage containers and water supply pipes. About 2.5 billion pounds of the chemical are produced each year.

Soy bread cuts prostate cancer marker -4 slices per day reduced psa after 30 days

Aspirin- Regular use of aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) seems to reduce the risk of developing various cancers, including prostate cancer. Now it appears that such drugs may help men with prostate cancer live longer, according to a Fox Chase Cancer Center study. Soy isoflavones are powerful antioxidants demonstrated to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase (5AR), an enzyme implicated in prostate disease development. In one study, men who consumed soy milk more than once per day decreased their prostate cancer risk by 70% compared to those men who did not consume soy milk. Lab studies have also found soy isoflavones to inhibit the growth of prosate cancer cells.

Soy isoflavones are powerful antioxidants demonstrated to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase (5AR), an enzyme implicated in prostate disease development. In one study, men who consumed soy milk more than once per day decreased their prostate cancer risk by 70% compared to those men who did not consume soy milk. Lab studies have also found soy isoflavones to inhibit the growth of prosate cancer cells. Research suggests that soy isoflavones may inhibit prostate disease development by stimulating your body's binding protein that keep testosterone hormone bound. Bound testosterone exerts less hormonal effect on the prostate gland. It is theorized that bound testosterone reduces the amount of free testosterone being converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the more active and dangerous form of testosterone.

VITAMIN E- In a 1998 study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, male Finnish smokers were given either 50 IU of vitamin E or placebo (sugar pill) per day. The men who took the vitamin E supplement reduced their incidence of prostate cancer by 32%, and reduced their risk of death from prostate cancer by 41%. In another study, researchers discovered that one form of vitamin E, gamma-tocopherol, to have value as an anti-cancer agent. Gamma-tocopherol occurs naturally in plant seeds such as walnuts, pecans and sesame seeds. In yet another study, gamma-tocopherol inhibited the production of lab-cultured human prostate cancer cells. And although the presence of gamma-tocopherol caused cell death by interrupting the synthesis of sphingolipids (certain fatty molecules, which are important components of cell membranes), it left healthy human prostate cells unaffected. As researchers increased the amount of gamma-tocopherol, cancer cells slowed in growth and healthy cells grew normally [Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences December 21, 2004;101(51): pp.17825-17830]

Resveratrol Good news for men concerned about prostate cancer: resveratrol is a supplement that blocks it at every stage, from beginning to end. A polyphenol found in grapes and other plants, resveratrol was first identified as a multistage protector in 1997, and now is considered a leading agent against prostate cancer by researchers at Houston’s MD Anderson Cancer Center and other institutions. Resveratrol works through more than a dozen different anticancer mechanisms and selectively targets cancer cells. This single supplement modulates hormones, has several mechanisms that stop cancer cells from multiplying, and even has the ability to destroy cancer cells.

Scutellaria Barbata- researchers found that the Chinese herb "Scutellar Barbata," was found to slow the progression of prostate tumors. The herb is relate to mint Labiate family. The work was done at Union College in Nebraska.The herb has long been part of Chinese medicine, used by doctors to treat everything from hepatitis to appendicitis to snake bites and lung and rectal cancer. They experimented with mice, feeding them "SB," as it is known and discovered that 50 to 70 percent of those given moderate to high doses were cancer free at the end.

Omega-6 fatty acids cause prostate tumor cell growth in culture; August 1, 2005. A study conducted at the San Francisco VA Medical Center (SFVAMC) has demonstrated that omega-6 fatty acids such as the fat found in corn oil promote the growth of prostate tumor cells in the laboratory. All meat which has been fed grains have omega 6 fats. All meat which has been fed grass or sea weed has beneficial omega 3 fat.

POMEGRANITE- A new study by University of Wisconsin Medical School researchers states that pomegranate extract may fight against prostate cancer. The research team then progressed to tests in mice that had been injected with prostate cancer cells from humans and developed malignancies. The mice receiving the higher concentration of pomegranate extract showed significant slowing of their cancer progression and a decrease in the levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a marker used to indicate the presence of prostate cancer in humans. The animals that received only water had tumors that grew much faster than those in the animals treated with pomegranate extract.
