#ecancer.tv #ProfessorGordonMcVie interviews #prostatecancer issues

Earlier this week I was fortunate enough to meet up with Professor Gordon McVie of the European Institute of Oncology, Milan at a Tenovus event.

We were talking about what the future holds for radiotherapy delivery to prostate cancer patients and other cancer patients.  He directed me to an interview he did with Dr Barbara Jereczek-Fossa about cyberknife which I can now recommend as a very interesting interview.

There are many interviews on this site that you may find of informative even for lay people such as myself.

I would like to recommend that anyone affected by prostate cancer should visit the ecancer.tv website and listen to some of the interviews he has conducted around prostate cancer.

Try 2 convince a Man under 30 …

Try 2 convince a Man under 30 that a particular diet, lifestyle helps prevent #prostatecancer Remember when we under 30? we lived for the day and gave little thought to avoiding all the overcooked red meat (burgers etc.) restricting our alcohol consumption (drinking water instead of beer!!) and avaoiding a high fat diet (sausage egg and chips!!  cheese!!). Taking regular exercise when you only got to bed at 3am after a party that gave us some release from the pressure of a working day. Life is for living so if we are going to advise our young men that avoiding all the things they seem to get pleasure from we have to offer something that will give them an exciting quality of life as they discover new things in those informative  years 0 to 30.
