Re: Nutrition & lifestyle tactics - books, resources and quick summary

My care team have suggested cranberry juice as a good thing to keep the urine flowing after "attention" has been given to the prostate - any comments?

Also I have been unable to track down a supplier of cranberry juice here (though several leads are still to reply) and locals have suggested chokeberry juice as a substitute - again, any comments. What I have learnt of chokeberries (despite a somewhat discouraging name) is: Total anthocyanin content is 1480 mg per 100 g of fresh berries, and proanthocyanidin concentration is 664 mg per 100 g. Both values are among the highest measured in plants to date.

Anthocyanins give chokeberries extraordinary antioxidant strength
