Whether a man is in his twenties, thirties, or sixties, he is always one day closer to being told he has a prostate problem. This growing health issue affects more than 20 million men nationwide, with more than 200,000 diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. Fortunately, positive lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet and exercise, can lower those odds. Dr. H. Ballentine Carter, a preeminent expert in the diagnosis and management of prostate disease, believes that it's never too late--or too early--to make important changes to improve and maintain overall prostate health.

With wisdom gleaned from his many years in the field, Dr. Carter cuts through the overwhelming amount of information on prostate problems, arming men with the knowledge they need to make the best decisions about prevention, testing, and treatment. Filled with simple and nutritious recipes, easy-to-follow workout routines, and a straightforward approach to demystifying complex medical jargon, The Whole Life Prostate Book is an empowering manual for maintaining optimal health throughout a man's life.

Excellent, well-written, authoritative information on men's prostate health, with special attention given to demystifying prostate cancer. Very helpful diagrams accompany the clearly written text that describes how the urogenital system works in men (with some comments demonstrating similar systems in women). Even though I don't face cancer yet, I was reassured that if I ever do, it may not need to be operated upon or treated with harsh chemicals or radiation. The authors emphasizes "watchful waiting", awareness without the disruptive, damaging, premature action that the very thought of cancer seems to inspire in many people. Highly recommended!
