    Quite informative with good use of graphics.
    With all due respect, concerning his discussion about lycopene and prostate cancer, I wonder what his comments would be regarding newer studies that refute this finding, such as this one?

    Everyday there are hundreds new studies coming out about food and its relationship to certain types of cancer. However, I believe Dr. Li’s overall message is food — not supplements — is what will protect our bodies. Creating anti- angiogenesis — or an inhospitable environment for cancer cells to spread — involves an intake of many antioxidants and phytochemicals, which are all found in a cornucopia whole foods.
