UK Edition

Dear Reader,

What's on the menu for dinner tonight? Perhaps a light pasta dish just to give your stomach a break before the big New Year's celebrations? Or are you grilling up some steak, to keep the festivities going?

Well, get ready to go to the supermarket. Because I have a feeling your menu is about to change.

Not just for tonight, actually. You're going to be rethinking your dinner line up so you can get plenty of this stroke-fighting entrée on the table... just in time for your list of New Year's resolutions.

You probably won't be incredibly surprised when I reveal that an analysis of 15 studies involving almost 400,000 people from around the world reveals that eating fish regularly can lower your stroke risk up to about 12 per cent.

Now, that was among people eating the most fish. On average, people who added three extra servings per week achieved a 6 per cent drop in their risk.

Researchers worked diligently to isolate fish consumption as much as possible — so other factors were eliminated,showing a cause-and-effect relationship between fish consumption and stroke prevention.

Oh, except people who tried to sneak in that fish through fish sandwiches and fried meals like fish and chips — no benefit there!

Six per cent don't sound like a lot, but it's all about working the combinations. Start with plenty of fish (be sure it's low mercury and wild-caught — and remember that fatty fish like salmon offers the highest concentrations of omega 3s) and add eggs boasting extra omega-3s, walnuts, free- range beef, even dark chocolate — and you're on your way to building a powerhouse of a stroke-prevention diet. Not to mention the other diseases these health-friendly foods can help prevent.

My point is, a little mindful menu planning trumps whatever lab-created chemicals drug makers want to shove down your throat in the name of disease prevention. I know it's hard to plan meals far in advance but it's certainly worth it.

I do my best to make sure the fridge is stocked with fresh foods that are easy and quick to prepare. After a busy day, it's surprisingly easy to throw some salmon in the oven and toss together a spinach salad with some nuts and fresh veggies.

The deal on DHT

Q: My doctor told me my di-hydrotestosterone (DHT) levels are high. He recommends taking prescription medications to help this. I really don't want to take a patent medicine, but he says DHT is carcinogenic, and that's not good for me either. What would you recommend?

Dr Jonathan V. Wright: As a first step, I'd suggest you ask to have your androstanediol level measured, and your DHT/Androstanediol ratio calculated, so you can be better informed before making any decision. Although there's no absolute proof of this yet, it appears logical that more "anti-carcinogen" than "pro-carcinogen" is a very good idea, so for now it appears reasonable to say that favourable ratios are greater than 1, and ratios of less than 1 indicate increased risk.

In general, I recommend that men stay strictly away from Proscar®, Propecia®, and Avodart® altogether. I've seen too many men taking these patent medicines who have DHT/Androstranediol ratios of less than 1, often much less than 1. (But for anyone who does decide to take one of these medications, be sure to have your DHT/Androstanediol ratio measured before and shortly after starting.)

You might want to consider talking to your doctor about trying one of Nature's more gentle 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, such as zinc and gamma-linoleic acid, both of which are essential nutrients as well as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors.

Of course, it's important to note that I've also seen a few cases where someone took so much saw palmetto that his DHT/Androstanediol ratio fell below one. And it doesn't matter whether the low ratio is due to prescription medicine, a herb, or anything else — the risk is the same.
