Earlier this year, in reference to dietary changes, I said: "If I make a
mistake, PSADT doesn't go from 5 years to 4 years: It's likely going
back to 7 months."
Well, looks like I made another mistake. Oatmeal for breakfast with
walnuts, a few raspberries, and about 4 oz of almond milk was a fixture
in my cancer diet. The PSADT was about 5 years for that diet. I went
to 6-7 oz of milk to add some calcium to the diet (milk is fortified), and
the PSADT went to 8.6 months. I then went the other way, using about
2-3 oz of almond milk, and I just got the result two days ago. The PSA
actually went down, albeit slightly. Can't over emphasize the importance
of getting breakfast right in any cancer fighting diet.
Could we have a "Zero growth" prostate cancer diet with this change?
Much too early to say, but that is the ultimate objective.
That is why I made the change to Almond milk quite a while back, just one of many changes, though not a lot of "proof" for any of them. Still, if adding or removing a food is easily done, if I like the foods OK and especially don't hate them, and there are rumors that they are helpful, I figure why not? After all, I've got to eat something. Might as well, when I can do so relatively easily, eat what ever has at least a modicum of evidence that it is helpful./nutritionfacts.org/video/prostate-cancer-and-organic-milk-vs-almond-milk//nutritionfacts.org/video/treating-advanced-prostate-cancer-with-diet-part-2/
I was using Almond milk but have shied away from it due to its Vitamin E profile.
Gear, I'm curious about
what is the problem with Almond milk's Vitamin E profile? I actually eat walnuts frequently, one reason because they are a good source of Vitamin E, particularly E2. (I think that is why I added them, if mem serves)
