Dean Ornish repeats the mantra made in my favorite book, "Anti-Cancer. A New Way of Life".

Diet / Lifestyle contribute most fundamentally to a broad spectrum of cancers. I quipped to my first (and fired) uro that an operation to change me into a Japanese male who eats a lot of fish, soy and green tea would be easier (on me anyway) than yanking out my prostate. He didn't get the joke.

Excellent video, muchos gracias!
