Updates for June 2013

June 23, 2013. In Biochemical PSA Recurrence we added:

  • Replacing animal fats and carbohydrates with vegetable fats. In an observational study of over 4000 men, "men who substituted 10 percent of their daily calories from animal fats and carbs with such healthy fats as olive oil, canola oil, nuts, seeds and avocados were 29 percent less likely to die from spreading prostate cancer and 26 percent less likely to die from any other disease when compared to men who did not make this healthy swap" [WebMD Summary] [PMID: 23752662] [video interview with author].
  • Pomi-t. A double blinded randomized controlled study of about 200 men found that those who took two Pomi-t capsules per day (where each capsule consisted of 100mg Broccoli Powder, 100mg Turmeric Powder, 100mg Pomegranate seed powder and Green Tea 5:1 extract 20mg equivalent to 100mg plus Gelatine in the capsule itself) experienced significantly lower rises in PSA vs. the control group (PSA rise of 14% vs. 78% in control) over a 6 month period. The study had no commercial funding. [ASCO Abstract]. [CancerNet UK Trial Descxription], [Pomi-t web site], [Abstract on Pomi-T web site] Powerhealth (manufacturer). (Note that this is from a presentation at ASCO and not from a journal article so it would not been subject to the scrutiny of peer review.)

  • June 12, 2013. In Testosterone Metabolism and Prostate Cancer we added: Note that since this page was written Ed Friedman has published a book entitled "The New Testosterone Treatment: How You and Your Doctor Can Fight Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer, and Alzheimer's". This book was just published so I have not seen it nor is the information below based on it. June 2013
