The book details various aspects and stages of prostate cancer and gives clear explanations. It also gives the reader an idea of what their chances of coming down with prostate cancer is according to family history. The one thing I found confusing was that it would appear that most supplements benefit in some way and harm in another at the same time. Supplements MAY help is stated along with a word of caution that they haven't been thoroughly researched yet. On page 173 there is a contradiction. The author says that polyunsaturated fats such as ALA (alpa-linolenic acid) are bad and MAY contribute to prostate cancer, while mentioning on the same page that a good fat such as canola oil is a good fat. Odd, because canola oil contains 1.3 grams of ALA per tablespoon and is mentioned as a good source of ALA in the Superfoods Rx book. After all is said and done, genetics and age plays a major role whether you will get prostate cancer and diet MAY help or it MAY not. The authors own guidelines for prevention seem very simplified and summed up on one page.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
