What foods should you eat if you want to keep your prostate healthy? How does sexual activity affect the health of your prostate? What are ways you can prevent prostate cancer? What should African-American men know about prostate cancer? What are the best alternatives to radiation and surgery in treating prostate cancer? What are the symptoms of an unhealthy prostate?

These are some of the many important questions that are answered by Dr. Daniel W. Nixon, one of America's premier cancer research institute leaders, and Dr. Max Gomez, the charismatic health commentator whose reports are aired on NBC television stations nationwide. The authors not only provide indispensable guidance in cancer prevention but also offer a dynamic, new noninvasive treatment of prostate cancer. Packed with information, The Prostate Health Program explains in clear, simple language the link between obesity and prostate cancer, the difference between an enlarged prostate and a diseased one, the causes of frequent urination and pain, and the specific prostate problems pertaining to gay men.

Drs. Nixon and Gomez offer a user-friendly plan of diet, exercise, and behavioral change that men can easily incorporate into their lives. The authors explain why aggressive treatment, such as radiation and surgery, is often unnecessary, less effective, and more dangerous -- often leaving men incontinent and impotent -- than other treatments.

The cornerstones of this unique program are the Prostate Health Pyramid and the Transition Diet, both of which were created specifically for this book and are the ultimate tools in prostate cancer prevention, control, and treatment. First, the foods that protect the health of the prostate are identified; then, food changes are introduced slowly for more effective and long-lasting reform of eating habits. Best of all, quick and easy recipes created by chefs at the Culinary Institute of America provide a menu that is healthy and delicious.

With its combination of cutting-edge research and highly respected, world- renowned authors, The Prostate Health Program is the definitive defense against a deadly disease.

About the Author:

Daniel W. Nixon, M.D., is the president of the Institute for Cancer
Prevention and the editor-in-chief of the journal Preventive Medicine.
Formerly the associate director for Cancer Control and Prevention at the
Medical University of South Carolina/Hollings Center, Dr. Nixon has written
dozens of scholarly papers and is the author of The Cancer Recovery Eating
Plan: The Right Foods to Help Fuel Your Recovery
. He lives in New York
City.

From Publishers Weekly:

Not asking for directions, not going to the doctor: sometimes it’s just a guy thing—and prostate disease is definitely that. According to the authors, it is "the single most prevalent problem in men’s health. Eight in ten men will eventually develop an enlarged prostate and one in ten will be diagnosed with prostate cancer." In this comprehensive guide, Nixon, the president of the Institute for Cancer Prevention, and Gomez, an Emmy-winning health commentator for NBC-TV, argue that a prevention regimen is the most effective course to take, both before and after a diagnosis. Diet and lifestyle changes can prevent cancer, they write, and, "in the war against prostate cancer, there is no greater weapon than nutrition." The authors advise men to avoid the Atkins frenzy ("a cancer-promoting diet") and to eliminate poor eating habits one at a time using the Institute’s extensive Prostate Health Pyramid and Transition Diet. Nixon and Gomez also detail the benign, although troublesome, prostate diseases of enlarged prostate and prostatitis. At times, their text can be dry and dense, especially when they describe the disease’s intricacies. The many useful sidebars, however, highlight, clarify and condense important points, and a symptom and treatment chart should help answer most questions. Most significantly, the authors expose the disease as a health crisis for African-American men, who have the highest prostate cancer rate in the world.
