Yes, V8.……. V-Fusion a drink in the markets is made with green tea and pomegranate juice. I just picked up a bottle. I cannot remember who makes the V8 series of drinks., remember memory is the second thing to go we all know what is the first thing to go! I guess soon all the prostate doctors will be in the unemployment line thanks to green tea and pomegranate juice.

The V-8 juice actually has a relatively small amount of pomegranate juice. Apple juice is the main fruit juice in this product. PomWonderful is 100% pomegranate juice, as is Chadwick Bay. I am trying to avoid radiation, as my PSA post surgery has slowly climbed to .16. I originally started with the pomegranate juice and 2 Nature's Way pomegranate extract capsules, as well as 3 1200mg lecithin capsules per day. I have since added acai extract and 4-150mg green tea extract capsules per day. I also drink a couple glasses of acai-pomegranate green tea per day. Arizona Tea makes this. I think it was $3.50 for 30 tea bags. It tastes great iced, but it is hard to stomach hot. Here's a link to a couple articles on green tea and prostate cancer.

I am still a fan of anti-oxidants - even though there are conflicting studies
- Lipton makes a nice Pomegranate- blueberry white tea - (nifty bag design - very sculptural) while Tetley has a pomegranate green tea
- am still enjoying my soy beverage ( not allowed to call it milk anymore)
-looking for a pomegranate juice in the area that is not so sugary... (finally on a strict diet - to lose 50#)
- and as others have stated before, positive thinking helps in the conquering of/ coping with, prostate cancer.
- may have to invest in some cashews and almonds the next time I go grocery shopping ....
