"Although standard medical texts (and insurance companies) do not endorse using PSA as a screen for prostate cancer, it is well known that patients with prostate cancer often have elevated levels of PSA. So when the pilot's PSA rose from normal levels of 1.1 and 1.6 in prior years to 3.9, he became concerned. His doctor told him not to worry since the levels still were within normal limits, but the pilot said he wanted his prostate gland biopsied. This was done, and a tiny area of malignancy was found."

"The diet plan and advice in this book will supply the RDI for most of the required nutrients; however, because our major dietary objective is reducing prostate cancer risk, a little variety could be lost, and some nutrients—primarily iron, magnesium, and calcium—will fall a little short. Supplementation is an easy way of insuring that all nutrients are present in adequate supply, any excess will be additional insurance. I recommend a daily supplement that provides the vitamins and minerals in the amounts listed in Table 18.1."

"At the same time, alcohol also increases the risk of all cancers, prostate cancer included. So what do you do? Analyze your personal relationship with alcohol. If you have a glass of wine with dinner, enjoy a beer after an afternoon working in the yard, or relax with a cocktail before dinner with your significant other, you're helping avoid heart disease and definitely not increasing your cancer risk—especially if you take the steps outlined in the rest of this book."

"That probably explains why heavy drinking causes above-average breast and prostate cancer risk. Another side of alcohol is its ability to dehydrate. In fact, the bad effects from too much alcohol—a hangover —are usually the result of dehydration and elevated blood sugar. So, be sure to drink lots of water. A good rule to follow is to have one full 8-ounce glass of water for each drink during the evening. This helps restore fluid loss and will keep you healthy. You can offset the alcohol even more by substituting a glass of orange juice for one glass of water."

"Conclusion After writing this book and reflecting on all the information it contains, I am struck by the simplicity and wide-reaching power of the approach to prostate cancer prevention in this book. It's simple because it calls for establishing some dietary and lifestyle habits that are not difficult by any measure, and wide reaching because these habits help prevent all cancers, heart disease, and the diseases of aging, such as cataracts. So, if the entire family adopts these habits, everyone becomes a winner and gains the prospect of living longer and living better."

"Men with prostate cancer or severe benign prostate disease are advised to avoid DHEA because it can be\ converted into testosterone, which may promote cell proliferation or cause an increase in dihydrotestosterone (DHT). To make sure DHEA is tolerated, men should consider having their DHEA blood levels tested initially after three months and then every six or twelve months, along with their levels of free testosterone, estrogen, and DHT. • Do not take DHEA if you could be pregnant, are breastfeeding, or could have prostate, breast, uterine, or ovarian cancer."

"The apricot kernel contains specific compounds that work to repair the prostate, They should be immediately included into the diet of anyone experiencing prostate troubles. I know of several people who have healed themselves of prostate cancer naturally, and who swear by these kernels. (Prostate issues can be helped by releasing pressure in the colon through enemas and colonics and by eating an alkaline diet). Wild young coconuts are also one of the Earth's most perfect foods. With electrified water and soft, "spoon meat" on the inside, few foods can compare."

"There is growing evidence that vitamin D inhibits the growth of cancerous cells in the prostate and in other areas, including the colon, too. Epidemiologists, who specialize in unlocking the mystery of where, why, and in whom disease occurs, have found that the risk of prostate cancer for black men in America climbs from south to north. When it comes to prostate cancer in black men, the risk is considerably lower in sunny Florida. But as you move north, the rate of prostate cancer in black men climbs until it peaks in the often cloud-covered heights of the Northeast."

"And there appear to be connections among sunlight, vitamin D, and prostate cancer in African Americans as well.

"A TRIP TO THE DOCTOR The morning of getting the news of his third prostate biopsy in six years, Rick was extremely anxious. His PSA scores were high, and there was a family history of prostate cancer. "I worked the Brilliant Health model on myself. I was able to contain the tension to some degree by setting an intention to be calm and focused. But by the time the nurse escorted me to the examining room, my heart was pounding, I was sweating, and my mind was racing. This could easily be one of those terrible bits of news that would forever change my life. I was anything but focused."

"Benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH), or noncancerous enlargement of the prostate, is a common problem. It's not clear what causes it, but it's so widespread among older men that it's thought that age-related hormonal changes are a major factor. Another potential ?and preventable—culprit: fatty diets. Autopsies of enlarged human prostates have shown an extraordinarily high cholesterol content compared with normal prostates. Research suggests that reducing dietary cholesterol may reduce the size of a swollen prostate."

"But instead, he could also increase his intake of zinc, really get into vitamins and minerals, use old Indian remedies (like saw palmetto), take pygeum africanum,376 take up an intensive study of alternative medicines, find out the healing aspects of ginseng, bee pollen, special amino acids and even reduce the growth of the prostate and escape the problematic drugs and surgery. Of course, he would have to change his diet to an anti-prostate growing diet, which exists, as a matter of fact."

"The doctor wondered if his patient might be developing hypothyroidism or if he was experiencing stress secondary to the prostate infection that might have been percolating beneath the surface for some time. He prescribed him 15 tablets of Halcion 0.125 mg for the insomnia even though the problem was described as recent and probably caused by the discomfort from the infection in Martin's prostate. When the prescription was about to run out, Martin called the doctor to ask for an increased dose."

"If the patient is a male, I will also check his PSA blood test (prostate specific antigen) because of concern about the long-term effects of DHEA on the prostate. Melatonin is useful for insomnia, jet lag and renormalizing the body's biorhythms. It is my clinical observation that the generally recommended dose of 3 to 6 milligrams is too high. I prescribe 0.1 to 0.5 milligrams as a beginning dosage. Side effects with the higher dose include uncomfortably vivid dreams, morning headache and grogginess."

"Returning home, he found a weak prostate reflex on his dad, which was not surprising since he had recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer. The new convert to TBM did the correction indicated, and the indicator muscle showed that the prostate reflex was now "fixed." If you leave the story at that point, it is interesting but not earthshaking in its importance. Listen to the rest of the story, though, before you decide."

"In early July of 1999, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. A prostatectomy in late July revealed that the cancer had expanded beyond the borders of his prostate and could not all be surgically removed. Once again, he received weekly radiation treatment in the area of his abdomen. After eight weeks of treatment, the cancer had cleared. "In 2001, the lymphoma returned, this time in his neck. It was removed surgically. Tim again received radiation, though this time it left severe burns on his neck."

"Smith later said he had been taking tramadol for back pain, as well as Flomax, for prostate problems, and diphenhydramine, the active ingredient in both Benadryl and Tylenol PM. Prosecutors also found that Smith had lied on his medical exam form in 2000 when he said he was not taking any medication. He had actually been using pills for insomnia, cholesterol, high blood pressure, back pain, and his prostate. Smith's doctor was indicted on charges of knowingly signing that medical report, which he knew was false. Smith pleaded guilty to eleven counts of seaman's manslaughter."

"This is great for an infant, but continue to consume IGF as you age and certain cells are continuously stimulated to grow—namely, breast gland cells, prostate gland cells, colon cells, skin cells, and cells lining your blood vessels and joints. Is it any wonder that milk consumption in adulthood is correlated with increased rates of breast, prostate, and colon cancer? Increased incidence of atherosclerosis is another association: Remember those breast-fed infants with plaques? That's right, milk."

"Benign prostatic hypertrophy occurs in all men as they age, although it is not known why the prostate enlarges over time. Symptoms of prostate enlargement can include frequent urination, especially during the night; pelvic pain; burning; impotence; and difficulty starting and stopping urination. Problems urinating can lead to urine remaining and becoming stagnant in the bladder, causing infection of the bladder and the kidneys. See also bladder infection and kidney stress."

"Many professions have high inertia when it comes to new ideas, even when the new ideas come from highly respected members of the community. In medicine this inertia can result in inadvertent harm to its patients. In the mid- 19th century, Hungarian physician Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis was abused, criticized, and ostracized for his promotion of the idea that doctors should wash their hands after delivering an infant. He suggested that the death of many mothers due to fevers after childbirth was caused by the failure of physicians to wash their hands between deliveries."

"It is not the concrete, obvious, or conclusive evidence we would like, but it is there. The bottom line is that the data is in favor of a protective role for vegetables in this family. So, eat your broccoli—at least a few servings per week! Green Tea, White Tea, and Black Tea ?The power of all tea varieties comes from their ample allotment of substances called polyphenols or catechins. These are antioxidant plant chemicals that tend to neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals."

"His doctor told him not to worry since the levels still were within normal limits, but the pilot said he wanted his prostate gland biopsied. This was done, and a tiny area of malignancy was found. When it came time to determine what to do about this cancer, the pilot was better informed than the doctor. And perhaps not surprisingly, more recent information indicates that prostate cancer is not a rare occurrence even with low levels of PSA; the pilot was right to be concerned about the change in his levels."

"And, finally, xenoestrogens have been strongly implicated in declining male sperm production and the increase in the rates of testicular cancer and prostate cancer. What's the Answer? Once we understand the problem, it is easy to see that for the vast majority of women, hormone replacement therapy with conjugated estrogens such as Premarin"8 is not the answer. It very well may be a major contributor to the problem. Most people are not aware that Premarin?is actually derived from horse urine. Hence the name: Pregnant mare urine."
