    Book details

A much-needed cookbook designed to make the male population more aware of the dangers of Prostate cancer, the most common non-skin cancer in America. Scientists have found that there is a link between diet and the development and spreading of Prostate cancer and that eating the right foods can make all the difference - here are over 100 delicious recipes from leading chefs, endorsed by The Cancer Research Association.

World-wide, there are 670,000 diagnoses of prostate cancer every year yet, until now, there has been little or no specific dietary guidance for men at risk of the condition or its spread.As an active researcher in the prostate-cancer field, I knew that there was evidence in the literature from human studies that some foods or nutrients could affect disease risk and felt that such information should be made available to men that might be affected.I therefore initiated a project whereby two of my final-year nutrition/dietetic students researched the evidence published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature for a link between foods or nutrients and prostate cancer.This led to our drawing up of a set of evidence-based guidelines for men that might help reduce the risk or spread of prostate cancer: in fact my students produced an excellent small cookbook based on their research findings.The interest among our friends and family in this small book was such that after the girls graduated, we decided to approach the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) with the idea of developing the book into something that could be more useful to affected men and their families. Luckily the PCRF enthusiastically embraced the idea and generously financed us to further explore the research findings and translate them into real recipes incorporating those foods.We persuaded a publisher well-known for producing cookbooks incorporating `healthy-eating' principles (Kyle Cathie) to have faith in our idea and so the Prostate Care Cookbook was underway.

    Quick delivery, well laid out

  • By Hilary Bennett on 30 January 2014

    I bought it principally for its advice on which food are best to eat to counter the development of prostate, and how to prepare them. At worst the advice will be harmless and at best extremely beneficial

    It details which foods will be helpful and why based on thorough research and experience. There are also useful recipes to help implement the recommendations.
