Do you have a history of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet. High blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug - and without the side effects. Worried about heart disease? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease, but often stop it in its tracks.
