Dairy-heavy diet linked to prostate cancer risk... Continued

Came across this Australian review of the study [1]. Extract:

"Perhaps the review’s most surprising omission is mention of the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) Continuous Update Project report on prostate cancer. This rigorous global analysis of the scientific literature identified much stronger risk factors that should be considered as possible confounding factors.

"For example, the evidence is rated as “strong” that being overweight or obese, and being tall (separate to weight), are associated with increased risk of prostate cancer. The exact reasons for this are not fully understood but could be especially significant in Australia where 74% of men are overweight or obese.

"A new Australian study found a higher body mass index was a risk factor for aggressive prostate cancer.

"For dairy products and diets high in calcium, according to the WCRF, the evidence remains “limited”."

"It’s not wise to judge any diet by a single food group or nutrient. A healthy diet overall should be the goal.

"That being said, milk, cheese and yoghurt are included in Australia’s Dietary Guidelines because of evidence linking them with a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, bowel cancer and excess weight. These dairy products are also sources of protein, calcium, iodine, several of the B complex vitamins, and zinc.

"Evidence about dairy products and prostate cancer remains uncertain. So before fussing about whether to skip milk, cheese and yoghurt, men who wish to reduce their risk of prostate cancer would be better advised to lose any excess weight."

I believe the Indian and Asian diet includes a lot more dairy than western diets, but their incidence of PCa is lower.

I've lost about 12 lbs since diagnosis. Any advice on how to lose a few inches of height? :-)

Tom,

Age will reduce height. But for age, one needs to be free of PCa.

So, what I'm hearing is that the way to cure PCa is to live with it until old age?
