Have you ever read a book called "Beating Prostate Cancer:Hormonal Therapy and Diet." by Dr. Snuffy Myers? In it I learned some dietary changes that I have made. My oncologist does not feel as strongly about
diet but does recommend some of the following from the book. Vitamin D3, Selenium, Lyc
opene, Fish Oil, Flaxseed, Vitamin E are all a part of the Myers diet suppliments. No red meat (I still have it four days a week , but not as much), eat more fish, veggies(I always have ate well with veggies), red wine (I only have it occassionally now), pomagranite juice (Hate it but a suppliment is available from POM).
Not only in the book, I take three more things daily: Faith, Love and Hope. They are very nutritous.
