JULY 31: PROSTABLOG NZ: Prostate cancer patients who think drinking calcium-fortified trim milk is a good way to maintain health need to read this.
In fact, the calcium milk (Calci-Trim in NZ) is the last thing prostate survivors should be touching, says leading Kiwi immunologist (and cancer survivor) Dr Richard Forster.
It’s quite the wrong thing to do, he told the NZ Prostate Cancer Foundation at its annual conference.
“Get your calcium from slow-release sources – like almonds,” he says. And go for soy milk.
Read more of Dr Forster’s advice – and how he and science colleague Dr Jim Watson are working on new treatments for advanced cancer – in Prostablog soon.
