Imo, his webpages on BPH are really worthwhile reading, fellow tribesmen!

SNIP:

 [in] Some Prostates Are Larger than Others it’s extremely rare in certain populations and diet may be to blame for our BPH epidemic. What if you already have it though?

      Sorry Motto, I'm not yet up to speed on that one, since I'm now dealing with CKD mostly.

      I'll buy the flax because my uro didn't want to prescribe prostate-shrinking meds yesterday, saying that meds take months to work, and my kidney issue is more serious, now that I'm peeing normally without cathing.

      I read until it said plant based diet...that’s not living to me. 

      But thanks for sharing. And most of us already know you have to search the thread topics due to the heavy moderation of this site.

      Motto will have to learn the hard way like the rest of us. By typing a long post and having it vanish into the deep of the internet.

      Yes, thanks. I haven't been a member long enough to see the heavy moderation. I mean, links? C'mon. Yeah, you can ban links that are spammy or trying to sell crap but a general rule like that is absurd.

    I believe that Dr. Greger is the best of the best, and have huge respect for his science-based nutritionfacts.org website. Thanks for the link. I have never eaten meat of any kind in my entire life and I am now 71 years old. But I was raised on a dairy and used raw milk and lots of eggs while I was growing up. As an older adult I am now totally vegan (OK, I gave up milk some 25 years ago and eggs only two years ago) and I eat lots of greens and beans. I now eat a Dr. Greger diet with huge salads and ground flax and broccoli sprouts and lots of delicious veggies and fruit. Yet my prostate was 127 CC in size until I had PAE for my BPH symptoms just over a month ago. No, my prostate did not get any smaller during the last two years of my life as far as I can tell, and my BPH symptoms continued to get worse. And I was only using about an egg a week during the last few years before going totally vegan. I am much improved now after my PAE procedure. I am up only two or three times a night instead of five to seven times an night, yet I still experience extreme urinary urgency at inopportune times. Are there any lifetime vegans out there to test the idea of prostate cell growth? I believe the milk and eggs are some of the worst problems in the American diet, along with meat and fat and refined vegetable oil. I have been on a better diet lately and hope to avoid getting cancer which every other male in my family history has had. I believe that Dr. Greger's diet is excellent at avoiding cancer. My father, a physician, died of metastasized prostate cancer at age 71 while he was otherwise still vigorous. I am having far too much fun to die! Thanks for the post. Bill.
