Received this book recently and found it full of useful general guidance as to what would help with prostate problems. This is complemented by a large range of simple menues designed to reduce the potential for cancer. Already changing my perception of diet and largely eliminated diary products as a first step. Good book, well written. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 185 recipes are practical, nutritious, delicious 8 Jan. 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Buffy Sanders originally created the recipes comprising The Prostate Diet Cookbook: Cancer-Fighting Foods For A Healthy Prostate when her husband was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer and was given only 18 months to live. That was five years ago. Buffy's diet led to a spectacular turn-around and today her husband leads a normal, active, cancer-free life. The 185 recipes are practical, nutritious, delicious, and kitchen cook friendly. The Prostate Diet Cookbook is very strongly recommended for anyone with a family member or friend who is endangered by or is at risk for cancer of the prostate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hope And A Fun Approach To Food Preparation 17 Feb. 2002
By Rosemary Brunschwyler - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It makes sense that a proper diet can have an impact on the prevention and treatment of prostate cancer. I have some doubt, however, about the ability of certain foods to destroy prostate cancer cells as claimed on the dust jacket. Fighting prostate cancer is a grim business and this book will help PC survivors and their loving spouses because it provides hope and a fun approach to food preparation. I am presently using the book more for its ideas and inspiration instead of trying to precisely follow each recipe.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why I decided against this book 16 Feb. 2004
By Patrick Oshea - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Background: my PSA has doubled in 6 months, but is still under 4.0. I am putting off a 2nd biopsy until I have given dietary changes a chance to kick in.
{The cover of the book has a picture of tomatoes. I believe Lycopene to be over-hyped at present, since there are no studies that show supplementation lowering PSA levels.}
Mr. Guler's comments worried me. The meat issue is really a fat issue (I wonder if the surge in Atkins adherents will lead to a surge in prostate cancer). The fat issue, as I understand it, is (a) the quantity of fat and (b) an imbalance between omega-3 & omega-6 fats.
Im told that grass-fed beef is lower in fat & has a one-to-one ratio, whereas corn-fattened beef has very little omega-3. So beef isn't entirely out of the question.
Fish can be a problem. Farmed salmon is high in fat, but because of the feed, it contains little or no omega-3.
My new diet has more fish (not farmed) than meat. Complex carbs. Vegetables such as broccoli & peppers, but not potatoes. No dessert. No dairy. Zone diet portions. Any general purpose cookbook will provide sufficient recipes.

2.0 out of 5 stars What is left out. 7 Jan. 2004
By George F. Guler - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The book opens with information regarding foods to be avoided that feed prostate cancer along with a endorsement by a medical doctor. The book does not define what is "meat" which is a food that the book states should be avoided. It also avoids the categories of seafood and moderate alcohol use such as wine with dinner. I wrote the co-authors requesting a clarification of the above items. Since they refused to answer my inquiry, I consider the book just another vegetarian cookbook with a misleading or incomplete title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas 3 Jan. 2007
By Stephen L. Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and had surgery, I have found this book to contain some exciting and good recipes to support healthy eating as part of the treatment of this disease. The recipes are very tasty plus nutritious. The only hang-up is that I live in a rural town where some of the foods and ingredients used in the recipes are hard to find, so I have to drive some distance to get them. That's some hassal, but the benefits are very worth while.
