My Dad had prostate cancer 10 years ago... He overcame the cancer and is healthy today, but obviously takes precautions as to his prostate health. I have been trying to get him to eat paleo for a while now, but he doesn't listen to me.. mainly because his doctors' advice is almost always the opposite of what I tell him.
I went to his house this weekend and saw soymilk in his fridge, and that just set me off. He said that his doctor told him to drink it for prostate health. He told me that he has been eating edemame and other soy products now due to his doctors recommendation. As you can imagine.. getting cancer scared the hell out of him, so he does everything his doctor says. I told him some of the general stuff about the problems associated with soy that I know from reading WAPF articles and such. However, he listens to his doctor over me.
What do you guys think about soy and prostate health. I don't want to tell him to not listen to his doctor if his doctor has some basis for what he is saying. But on the other hand, it is my freaking Dad! and it pisses me off to see him gain weight and have low confidence in his physical appearance because he is eating crap from his doctor's recommendation.
