Well, as far as health, I think both flexitarian and vegetarian diets will produce similar results to plant based probably. (Just my opinion as a layman.) But, when you throw in sustainability and the ethics of factory farm livestock, plant-diets are the clear winner in my mind.
Moving this to main board as we now have a few guys who are plant based and this will be of interest to them.
so I had a repairman at my crib and he saw a bottle of Life Extension natural prostate---and asked me if it worked
I said I dunno, I dont have bph issues BUT I did read that specific forumula caused ED in some dudes, so I dont take it
if he wants to prevent BPH issues he needs to
-eat a low fat diet(under 15-20%)
make sure e2 is in a 20-30 range
-maybe take daily cialis?
and eat tomatoes and broccoli
According to this research, eating broccoli along with tomatoes maximizes the cancer protection both foods provide.
In the study, rats fed a tomato-and-broccoli combo had way less prostate tumor growth than rats given diets containing either food alone or normal rat chow diets supplemented with lycopene (a cancer-fighting carotenoid isolated from tomatoes) or finasteride (the drug commonly prescribed to men with benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=george&dbid=130
