    Here is some basic information about prostate cancer and benign prostatitis. Ive been diagnosed with both. Im not a doctor. What I offer here is the opinion of a lay person.

    Here are the places I found helpful. It would be too much typing for me to explain what each place is about. So just click and see. But I will add that the first two have telephone counselors you can speak with.

    For those interested in research-based info about nutrition for prevention etc.

    Heres what I take:
    Tomato product. I happen to drink V8 juice almost every day. So that takes care of this. But it can be done other ways.

    Cruciferous vegetables and red wine. I have no information that says you can use supplements instead, but I take Life Extension, Triple Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract with Resveratrol

    Pomegranate. I take POMx Pills because they are good strength and theres some indirect research supporting their use.

    Quantum Prostate Complex. I started taking this before I got cancer. Its for benign prostatitis. I have no idea what the deal is with this; I just take it in case.

    Vitamins. There are recommended vitamins and minerals. But because there is a supplement I take for CFS that has all of these (plus more), I just use that. Its K-PAX, Fuel of Life. I take 4 twice a day, not the larger dose.

    Of course, there are other choices. And I take other things too, but they are motivated by CFS.
