Interview with Ken Walles who dealt with Prostate cancer using natural methods. Interview in 2010. Mr. Walles is still doing just fine.

August 2010 - News articles continue to discuss the downsides of all treatment choices while failing to offer 'alternatives'. Below we feature many articles about natural substances, tips and techniques that may reduce the unwanted effects (so-called 'sde' effects). Check it out. Feel free to email us - you will receive a response.

From David:

The Annie Appleseed Project continues to evolve and add new features. As part of this program it is collaborating with Health Information Research, Inc. (a nonprofit 50c3 based in North Palm Beach, FL) to create a special section dealing with prostate cancer. It's called the “Prostate Corner”.

David S. Most, PhD, Executive Director of HIR, Inc. will be the Editor of the Prostate Corner. He is a nine year survivor of prostate cancer and has devoted the last eight years studying the literature and writing about this disease.

He serves currently as the Chairman of the Jupiter, Florida Prostate Support Group. In the years 1997 – 2001 he worked with the International Cancer Alliance for Research and Education that sponsored an Annual Prostate Cancer Symposium in West Palm Beach.

One of the new features of our “Prostate Corner” will be critical reviews of new publications. We will attempt to sort the “wheat from the chaff” and help our readers to understand the real significance of what is being published.

Please feel free to communicate with us directly with suggestions, comments, and criticisms. All dialogue will be welcome.
