    Why don't they just re-title the article to read.

    Most foods give you Prostate Cancer.

    This means we've all had prostate cancer since our early teens.

    There wasn't anything on that list that was actually good for you. HH

    That's the problem with the current crop of journalists and scientists. If you read something, can you believe it, or is it spun, fabricated or based on carefully selected facts?

    All it takes is a few people willing to lie for an agenda and it debases the value of all science. In my opinion every legitimate scientist and researcher should be screaming for the head of anyone caught using bad science to push an agenda of any kind.

    As for this, I think it is likely accurate as far as science can take us at this time. I know that the childhood leukemia - processed meat linkage has been well documented for years, well enough that I have not had bologna or hot dogs in our home for a long time.

    I agree. It would be nice if I could (or could afford) to eat everything right off the organic farm and garden.

    But man would that cost some serious $$ and be a huge PITA.

    'Sounds like a lot of bull?' Not to me it doesn't. There is not the slightest doubt in my mind that if I had the habit of drinking soft drinks and carbonated soda I wouldn't be alive today - Not the slightest doubt.

    I gave up soda and soft drinks more than 30 years ago. I'm one of very few older men in our rather large family who has not had a coronary bypass; and, even though I do suffer from congestive heart failure, it has nothing to do with the way that I eat.

    As for my prostate? The doctor tells me I'm like a young man - No problem whatsoever. Just so you know, I eat a daily diet very similar to the one that's recommended in this article - Very similar!

    Thanks for posting this. (Reinforcement is always good!) :)

    The list makes sense from a general health perspective, but some of the presentation compromises the integrity of the article. For example, citing artificial sweetners as a cancer causing agent just hasn't been proven. In fact the overwhelming evidence is that they do not cause cancer.

    Unless you're reading (and understand) a p-value from an appropriately powered and reproduced clinical trial, it's fair to question validity.

    Really??? Only thing on that list that I don't eat is artificial sweeteners (much prefer sugar), and the red salmon.

    I roughly figure I've ate a couple tons of good corn fed steaks and Lord knows how many hamburgers and roasts. Then there are chickens and every thing else on the list except the sweeteners and salmon. I do eat other kinds of fish.

    I'm nigh onto three score and ten and my last prostate check was good and I've had no heart problems. Not on any cholesterol meds.

    I figure my secret to prostate health is to 'use it' twice a week. Used to be a lot more frequent than that when I was younger. You've all heard the old saying about 'use it or loose it.'

    More likely has something to do with the type of people who like to eat red meat, than the red meat itself. You can come to nearly any conclusion with a study and statistics.

    As a preventative measure, I just express my prostate 1-12 times per day.

    The diet most Americans have is a very unhealthy one. It increases the risks of many health problems. Prostate cancer is one of them.

    Were that the case, my prostate would have jumped out my a-hole and ran off years ago.

    I also read that if all men lived long enough, we would all get Prostrate Cancer.

    Articles like this that poo-poo processed, non-organic or farmed raised (as opposed to "free range" or wild) foods never present the other side of the argument. That argument being that we are all better off because we get enough to eat and we don't have a percentage of the population simply starve to death the way it was before these advances came about.

    Well, proof of harm from artificial sweeteners is not needed. Just the fact that they are laboratory products with nothing our bodies can use is enough reason to avoid them; at least for me. I prefer small amounts of real sugar - which is our body's main energy source.
