Thanks for that very useful link,Terry.  I have sent it in an email to my husband so he can read through it. 

His PSA is currently rising and indicating that his prostate cancer has metastasised.  In the past 8 years he has had a prostatectomy, radiotherapy and is now on hormone treatment.  He has been cutting down on carbs and exercising regularly, but that is to lose weight.  Maybe he should cut the rest of the carbs out of his diet.

He is not diabetic but maybe he would benefit from being on Metformin as mentioned in the report.     
Diabetes Type2 diagnosed March 2014.  Treated by diet only.  HbA1c 60 on diagnosis, 52 in June 2014, 50 October 2014, 44 December 2014, 48 May 2015, 50 Sep 2015, 53 Jan 2016, 50 Oct 2016, 56 Feb 2017, 50 Jun 2017. 50 Aug 2017. 47 Feb 2018. 50 Jul 2018. Pacemaker fitted 2008 - replaced 2017.

When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want 'em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

Stick with a low carb diet and eat or supplement with ginger.

Interesting Terry, BUT - this was with 'ginger extract' applied to 'cancer cell lines' - so presumably this is in a petri dish rather than infused or otherwise introduced into a human body?

The first thing I don't know is, whether ginger extract is something a normal person can get hold of, and then, what do you need to do with it to apply it to your 'cell lines' bearing in mind none of us has access to our internal organs, let alone any cancer cells therein.

I'm not at all convinced eating ginger would help!
