I never have been a big red meat eater, maybe twice a week, 3 at the most, a big vegetable eater.
since the surgery and reading Milken's diet and Dr. Walsh's book, I have had only about 12 0z of red meat since December.
It seems that in Asian countries that don't eat a lot of animal fat and consume more soy, their prostate cancer rates are much lower than here. Even the Asian population here has more cases of prostate cancer than their couterparts in their home countries. Due to less animal fat or more soy or both?
My diet now is no red meat except a pinch sometime, some chicken, no dairy products (I use to eat 2 cartons of Bryers each week, realy miss that), no deserts with sugar, Salmon, lots of vegetables, fruit, pom. juice, soy milk, soy shakes. We have made one discovery, eating healthy is more expensive!!!
Does this do any good, I don't know, but I am willing to sacrifice this great tasting food to live longer if it helps.
However I have lost 30 lbs since December and haven't weighed this since I was in high school.
Everyone have a good day.
