This is actually from last year I think, but it is a about an hour long talk given by Pollan on what he proposes as the future of our agricultural system. His thinking is in large part due to the idea that the energy requirements for our current agriculture system are not sustainable. As energy costs soar it has a direct affect on food costs (along with everything else) and further is very detrimental to sustaining productive soil. I he points out that each calorie of food has about 10 calorie inputs from fossil fuel.

prostate, cancer, prostate cancer, cancer preventionA new review assessed whether certain modifications in diet have a beneficial effect on the prevention of prostate cancer. Results suggest that a diet high in fruits and vegetables is beneficial in preventing and treating the cancer.

Researchers conducted an evidence-based review of dietary recommendations in the prevention of prostate cancer as well as in the management of patients with prostate cancer.

The consumption of tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, green tea, and vitamins including Vitamin E and selenium seemed to lead to a decreased risk of prostate cancer. Consumption of highly processed or charcoaled meats seemed to be correlated with prostate cancer.
