Prostate Support Group 5:30 - 6:30 Sentara Albemarle Medical Center Education Room Spouses, family members, and friends are encouraged to attend Warren Green is head of a prostate support group and can be reached at warreng9241@hotmail.com May 21 2015 July 23 2015 Health and Nutrition Strategies For Cancer Survivors and Everybody Else Annual Review Most of my readers are familiar with my background. For those who are new to the column, and those who’ve forgotten, here’s a quick refresher. I’m a retired Meat Inspector from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets,and retired Supervisory Food Technologist for the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) in Washington,D.C. In the latter position I served on numerous task forces including: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). I was trained in Water-borne, Vector-borne, and Food-borne disease by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC). I glean information from scientific data, clinical trials and studies. In essence, how to protect yourself from our toxic environment. In 2005 I was diagnosed with a very aggressive prostate cancer (9 Gleason Score), had a prostatectomy, and returned to my everyday routine. In 2008 the cancer recurred. .After a period of depression,fear and anger,I decided to change my environment, change my life style and got busy controlling the disease, since a cure apparently wasn’t in the cards. . At the time, I was living in the industrial Midwest where frequent ozone alerts, and a fungal disease (Histoplasmosis Capsulatum), are environmental norms. I relocated to Northeast North Carolina (NNC) to improved air quality, and to provide myself with better medical options than were available in Indiana. Northeast North Carolina is within a 280 mile radius of 4 of the top comprehensive research cancer centers in the country (Duke,Wake Forest, UNC, and Johns Hopkins). I selected John Hopkins because their literature suggested that 80-90% of prostate cancers were dietary linked. That dietary link suggestion, fit comfortably into my professional training, and NNC fulfilled my need to change my environment and life style. With air quality taken care of, It was time to take on the primary environmental component “food”. In this region, it’s possible to purchase organic quality produce at very a competitive price, that’s picked within 24 hours. Muscadine grapes, berries, sweet potatoes, cruciferous produce,and tomatoes, all notable cancer fighters, are in abundance. An added bonus is that the region has a large, plentiful variety of fresh fish. The lucrative cancer industry is focused on treatment. Research is a small but important component of the industry. Research includes studies, and clinical trials. That’s where we’ll be looking for our “Cause”, in our “Cause and Effect” strategy. My unique training in U.S. food safety and my cancer survival, offers us a unique opportunity to examine the nuances and complications of our free market food chain, and how cancer survivors and can protect themselves and there families . Note: In 2013 the American Cancer Society’s “Man to Man” program was discontinued. Our local support group will close July 23rd. My information and assistance will always be available through this column. As always I welcome your suggestion and comments. Remember, let food be your medicine.
