hello - was searching for information regarding a new herbal remedy for my sleep apnea - and if it was safe for men with prostate cancer to use it - found a link to a disturbing series of links and finally a writeup from Dr. Snuffy Myers (2005)
-- this may be old news to some of you - but it is certainly new to me ...

" ... All of this science suggests that taking the sufficient amount of chondroitin sulfate to protect the cartilage lining of your joints might also foster prostate cancer progression, as well as the growth of other malignancies. I recommend you avoid chondroitin sulfate until clinical trials can demonstrate its safety. ..."

Ouch -
something I took en masse for joint pain - I was "taken out" in Jr. high school basketball - both dis-jointed knees have been an issue ever since.

Consider the Glucosamine-only version of the "joint juice."

Casey,

The uro took me off of everything "natural" at the first visit. Pity that was after the fact.
 
They allow fish oil, vit. D, and cranberry extract now.
