I am starting to adopt a healthier diet strategy too. Partly because of the PCa, but also because for the first time I have posted a high cholesterol count; 213 and a elevated BP as well. Like you said diet has not been linked to the occurences of the most common cancers, but there are some compelling studies that show excessive consumption of red meat, and colon cancer are linked. I am a beef eater like my dad, and he develope pre-cancerous polups a few years ago. Also beef eaters seem to have a high rate of PCa, but this too is yet unproven.
All-in-all I guess in my effort to prevent stroke and heart disease; I may be inadvertently lowering my risk of colon cancer, and the possible recurrence of the PCa. I doubt if I'll be able to give up beef altogether, and I do love my cheese. So I will try to limit the amount as much as possible.
My wife also bought me the pomegranite juice, and I will give it a try too. This changing of diet is not going to be easy; we will need support, and a lot of will power. Good luck to you on your life style change.
