Our books provide useful information about prostate cancer prevention, staging, treatments and treatment side effects. Click on each title for specific information on how our publications can better address your specific treatment.

In addition to our widely-read prostate cancer periodical The Prostate Forum, Dr. Charles “Snuffy” Myers has created a wide array of PCa resources for our audience that have been praised across the globe as the best of their kind. With readers from California to Germany—even as far as New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa—our entire body of information is intended to help both patient and physician tailor unique treatment strategies for each patient’s specific diagnostic case. His first book, Eating Your Way To Better Health, galvanized the prostate cancer diet literature and acted as the mold for many of the leading groups providing nutraceutical information to the general public. http://www.prostateforum.com/bookstore.html
