"When you've got your health you've got just about everything". Feb. 2 2006
By fdoamerica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
You know you are getting older when your friends greet you by saying "How are you doin?', How's your prostate?" Drs. Nixon and Gomez believe it is time for men to get serious about paying attention to their prostate glands.

In this book you will get the critical information that can help you help guard your health. This is first and foremost the best "preventive" medical book out on this subject.

Diet, that hideous four letter word, is front and center in preventing prostate problems (including cancer). Yes, it is about eating good foods that will protect your health. You will learn how to do a `drive by' fingering (middle index) to the fat-laden, concentrated fast food joints. The doctors first give you reasons why you need to change your eating, (Duh. You're going to die a painful death if you don't) and then they pile on the menus and recipes that you can try.

This book promotes a "take charge" of your life message and then gives you a step by step, systematic guide. To quote the doctors, "The vast majority of cancer doesn't just happen, we do it to ourselves."

This informative guide is extremely well written and easy to understand. The sections on understanding your prostate and the prostate check are worth the price of the book alone. The chapter on prostate cancer and treatments are very good. If you have prostate cancer then this book, along with "Dr. Peter Scardiono's Prostate Book", will help you through this difficult time. Get them both. Highly Recommended,
