Kind of like the old joke about why eating carrots is good for your eyes, have you ever seen a rabbit wearing glasses ?
Have you ever heard of a shark with prosate cancer ?
There are thousands of men who have been cancer free after brachy without taking anything special. And there are those who have taken every good there is and still have a reoccurence.
And, there are many sellers of supplements out there who love to make good money selling us unproven supplements.
I think the guys on here who advocate a heart healthy diet, exercise, and weight mamagement are the closest to the truth on this stuff. Even if it doesn't help, you feel great anyway.
Welcome to HW. Beware of those selling supplements that are proven to prevent cancer.
