Abstract

Treatment of early stage prostate cancer (with a Gleason score less than seven) with a plant-based diet has been studied, and efficacy noted even after 5 years. However, this is a case of a patient with Stage 3 prostate cancer, who chose to follow a plant-based diet after his diagnosis, and is still alive today, 32 years later, despite being given a prognosis of 10% 3-year survival. The patient is a retired physician, who was given the best available treatment since his diagnosis in 1987. He also chose to follow a largely plant-based diet after his diagnosis, recognizing its potential for treating prostate cancer. He has outlasted all other patients with a similar diagnosis, who were given the same treatment at his major city-based hospital. He attributes this to his plant-based diet. This is the first case we are aware of where a patient with stage III prostate cancer exceeded his prognosis for 32 years.
