I can buy the healthy diet stuff. I think overall it is not a bad deal all around. I have seen studies on obesity and PC.
But, I have given up some of my QOL and I am not regretful. It was a necessary trade. My diseased walnut full of G9 PC was traded for some incontinence for 8 months, and some ED issues which continue.
Statistically, I have around an 80 % chance of living for the next 10 years. Hopefully, most of those will be in reatively good health, even if I have a reoccurence. The next 5 after that are in question statistically. This is without any major additional changes. Oh yes, I may have to have SRT and/or HT , but those are again, worth the cost for the benefit received.
Diet is another issue. There is some insinuation, maybe some scientific speculation. but nothing compared to the hard statistics showing the effectiveness of surgery, SRT, HT,m etc. The simple fact is that most likely it will not cure cancer, or stop its progression. I won't argue that it may be able to slow it down a little, the question is for how long ?
We have men on here who are questioning the risk of SRT or HT as opposed to doing nothing. I for on will most likely take the longer odds of SRT and/or HT. However, as stupid as it sounds, I am unwilling to give up one of the few pleasures I have left for the long odds that some flax seed, pomegranete juice, or no meat will somehow extend my life. It is one QOL that I have a choice about.
I intend to enjoy a good steak once in a while, some bacon and eggs once in a while, or some chicken cooked over an open fire, with lots of butter, and a big piece of pecan pie.
Yes, I intend to watch my weight, my choleterol, and my bloodpressure, but I'll be darned if I intend to give up the goodlife I have come to enjoy through my taste buds.
