State of the Art: Nutrition and Prostate Cancer – Summary:

Mark A. Moyad MD, MPH, the Jenkins/Pokempner Director of Preventive & Alternative Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical Center in the Department of Urology, discusses how reducing caloric intake and improving heart health can help patients fight prostate cancer and reduce the odds of recurrent cancer.  He also argues that experimenting with supplements along with cancer treatment can be disadvantageous and that over the counter drugs should only be taken with a certificate of analysis. Dr. Moyad further discusses how dietary changes for cancer patients will also improve their heart health, mental health, and quality of life.
