    that's a good question. It looks like the conclusion was the diet helped but not significantly.

    I also wonder about the low fat plant diet. Other than certain well known low fat high carb plant based diet gurus, I have never seen a low fat diet that had a fat level below thirty percent. Unless one specifies exactly what people are eating I remain skeptical.

    I just had an 88 year old cousin die from spinal cancer which I believe started out as prostate cancer. One often hears that you die with prostate cancer but not from it but in this case the prostate cancer did lead to his death.
