Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect men and there is evidence that the health of the prostate can be helped by a diet of eating the right foods and avoiding harmful effects of others. This is both a cookbook and guide written by expert Margaret Rayman, who created the Nutritional Medicine Post Graduate programme for the University of Surrey. A detailed introduction looks at why diet is so important and how eating certain foods can help prevent development of the disease or its spread. Various top chefs have put their healthy hats on and contributed some great recipes that include Broad Bean and Apple Crostini, Moroccan Lamb Stew, Chicken with Walnut and Pomegranate Sauce, and Ruby Fruit Salad with Raspberry Coulis. Simple to prepare and made from easily accessible ingredients, these recipes can also be used for everyday family eating as well as entertaining.
