Re: Creatine and Prostate cancer
I've seen the studies on the association between red meats and PC. One can argue that it's the animal fats rather than the animal proteins. One can argue that the browning of the meat from the roasting, broiling or grilling process more common with red meats creates carcinogens. One can also argue against causation, because people who eat more red meats may be also eating, say, more trans fats or leading more stressful lives. Also, all animal meat, including fish and poultry has creatine, and neither has ever been implicated in prostate cancer.
But in your case, haven't you already been cured of PC, or is there some reason to believe you have you suffered a recurrence after treatment? Is your former prostate cancer at all relevant at this point? If the doctor doing the surgery wants you to take creatine to stimulate tissue healing, that would seem to be the most important thing you can do at this point.
