My natural response to things like is one of deep suspicion. Same with miracle diets, miracle food cures for ever divers diseases and ailments. If it were that simple, would have been thought of years ago. I am only 5'8" and I sure got a good case of PC out of the blue. My brothers, both over 6', have very low PSA over the years. I think if you twiddle enough with statistics, you can make any case stick.
