Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common type of cancer among men, killing some 42,000 every year. Two new guides seek to provide the latest information on the disease and the treatments available. Written by leading medical experts, the American Cancer Society's Complete Guide is an accessible and comprehensive survey that describes PCa and explains who is at risk, backing up its discussions with statistics. Symptoms, early detection, and what to expect when seeing a doctor are also addressed. Confusing diagnostic medical terminology and acronyms are explained in the text and conveniently repeated in the glossary. The volume also outlines treatment options-e.g., watchful waiting, hormonal therapy, radiation and brachytherapy, surgery, and cryotherapy-and details the combination of factors that predict outcomes. There is advice on how to manage the medical establishment, deal with insurance, assure emotional support for the patient and his family, and contact support groups. Bubley (genitourinary oncology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Ctr., Boston) explains how, owing to increased public awareness and improved screening tests, PCa is more often detected at its earliest and most treatable stages. With over 25 years' experience in conventional and experimental prostate cancer therapies, Bubley clearly discusses the natural remedies and alternative medicines that can complicate treatment and may have adverse consequences if the doctor is not kept informed of their use. Bubley hopes his overview will open and encourage patient/physician dialog about treatment options and possible changes in diet and lifestyle to help maintain wellness and improve prostate health. Both guides are good choices for consumer health collections, but if funds are limited, stick to the excellent American Cancer Society title.-James Swanton, Harlem Hosp.

    Ying Yang Confusing

    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.
