Report issued yesterday rated 3 different treatments according to "problems" and cost.

Brachy- 3.4% had problems, $2,557.00 per year

Prostatectomy- 6.7% had problems, $3,206.00 per year

Ext Beam Rad- 7plu% had problems, $6,412.00 per year

Not good at computer stuff so I don't have page. I'm sure you will be able to pull up information.

Only men over 65 were used in study. Other information included in article.

Usual stuff about more study needed also in article.

Can you tell us who did the study and where it appeared, K? Although I appreciate these findings, it'd be nice to be able to see them in context. Thanks.

Not very good at this. Got to story from www.nutriadvice.com , then a band of orange highlighted stories on the left of the page, about 3 or 4 stories down.

Promise I'll learn how to click site addresses.
