From supplements to real food

Any advice? Need to carve out time to look at all the anti-prostate cancer supplements I’ve been talking and find real food alternatives. Doctor says it maybe more risky than safe over the long run to keep taking so many supplements. I have been taking over 13 supplements especially now that I know I have low risk Gleason 6 PCa. I plan to research and create a diet plan. I’m sure someone out there has been there done that.

Hi I’m new to all this as well but moving more towards plant based diet after watching the movie, there’s a couple of people on there taking lots of supplements which I thought about when I read your post. There is another film called forks over knives but I haven’t seen it yet, good luck with your journey

Hi Kay_Lee. I watched What the Health. Great movie. Scary what they do to chicken. I will never see meat the same way. I was working on my new diet plan st the same time so I want to see it again. I heard of the other movie so will plan to see that one as well. Focusing on food is harder work but it should be worth it.

Hi brilliant

A vegetarian or vegan diet is often recommended to prevent the development of prostate cancer. It’s by no means a magic bullet, but it seems to work for a lot of people. Being a healthy weight, not smoking and doing some exercise are also very important in reducing the likelihood of cancer.

Our bodies can use nutrients from food more effectively than from supplements. If you don’t adopt a vegetarian diet, do make sure to include a wide variety of vegetables in your meals, particularly cruciferous veg. Cut out heavily processed foods, including processed meats, and sugar.

Penel is right. I just watched a sky news article on bacon without the cancer promoting nitrites (or was it nitrates?!?)
