I’m a 9.6 year prostate cancer survivor – Class of 2003 – so I’m approaching that 10 year recurrence window.
As a result, I’m redoubling my efforts to make certain my diet is as close to a cancer prevention eating program as it can be. Yes. I do believe there is a cancer prevention program we can follow.
But today’s post is about green tea. You may or may not be a single malt scotch drinker, but there was a period in my life where I became quite a single malt connoisseur.

Pomegranate also is reported to be a healthy and a useful anti-prostate cancer food, so I simply heat up the water, add a splash of Pom Wonderful, drop in the tea bag, and 4 minutes later I have a great cup of tea.

I had stage 3 into stage 4 anal cancer in 2004. 5FU chemo and radiitaon at the same time. I suffer from numerous latent chemo problems such as chemo fog and latent radiitaon problems such as chronic dry mouth and eye problems. I came out the other side, but never been the same as before. I tell everyone that at least I’m still here to piss and moan about how crappy I feel everyday, LOL!
