    "Typically, men think about their health at one time -- during a crisis. But the problem with that wait-and-treat approach is that men are constantly responding to health emergencies rather than preventing them.

    So what's the prescription for better men's health? Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen say there are 11 things a man should eat every day --or nearly every day --to keep things running smoothly."

    ""It takes 165 raw tomatoes to equal 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce," Dr. Roizen says. "So it's much easier to have tomato sauce.""

    Wtf? What on Earth does he mean by "equal"? I don't know if that man's ever made tomato sauce, but I think he has a wildly incorrect view of how much it cooks down. 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce is probably one or two decently-sized tomatoes.

    Unless it just means the benefits are magnified by a factor of 10 when you cook the tomato, in which case, fry the tomato before you eat it. But I kind of can't believe that. Most foods don't get a ten-times boost in their health benefits just from getting hot.

    "To get in the news, there are 4 things you need to do:

    1. Enumerate everything in a short simple list with no more than a dozen items.

    2. Make sure that each item in that list requires no more than a couple of sentences to describe.

    3. Make sure that you make everything in your list seems total critical, using words like "always", "every" and "should" (or even better, "must", when you can get away with it).

    4. Even when you are overgeneralizing to the point of absurdity, make sure you use really specific numbers so that people think you know what you're talking about. (E.g. "Dr. Oz suggests 24 ounces of coffee a day..." regardless of age, activity level, or weight/body mass.)"

    I have a much shorter list.

    1. A varied and balanced diet.

    I don't think I am making it to CNN this week.

    No mention of promegranate juice. For you know what! Damn, The good stuff cost more than wine.

    "Studies indicate that pomegranate juice reduces arterial plaque, reduces systolic blood pressure, and reduces LDL cholesterol.

    Additionally, a study at UCLA involving 50 men who had had surgery or radiation for prostate cancer (yet still had detectable levels of PSA afterwards) found that drinking one eight-ounce glass of pomegranate juice each day extended the average doubling time of PSA from 15 months to 54 months.[1]"

    I think he's referring to lycopene content. For some reason, cooking tomatoes increases lycopene bioavailability a ton.

    Yeah "canned tomatoes" are actually better for you then fresh. Can't trust any common sense anymore.

    Pussy is a good option. Cats are awfully quick, so the hunt itself will burn a lot of calories, and the meat is very lean. Good thinking, Aero

    I have never been a fan of the taste, I'm afraid....

    Why eat a common house cat when there's Tiger on the menu? :-)

    I'll have to try out tiger. I wonder if it's lean and tough from all the running?
