Admin posted a topic in Articles on other sitesThere are five Thursdays in this month. Each Thursday I aim to present one of the YouTube videos from the PCRI. This video today is about diet for men with prostate cancer, by Mark Moyad, an old friend of ours. And a reminder that we have a few videos of our own on the JimJimJimJim channel: https://www.youtube.com/jimjimjimjim/videos Including an audio YouTube video of Mark Moyad on one of our phone-in meetings: Mark Moyad Prostate Cancer Research Report 2017: “Dr. Moyad is arguably the world’s leading medical expert on dietary supplements, but he’s not quick to recommend them to everyone.” (from the Editors of Prevention Magazine).

The Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) is an important source of information for about prostate cancer for patients, families, and the medical community. As part of their mission to empower men and their caregivers they make YouTube videos.
