Hi Laurie, shark cartilage is also reputed to have anti-angiogenesis properties. my question: has anyone witnessed success with either of these therapies? another note on this same topic is the role of a prostaglandin, PGE2, that PROMOTES angiogenesis. PGE2 is produced naturally in the body and promotes inflammation (chronic inflammation is closely linked with PC). PGE2 is a product of arachadonic acid breakdown, and arachadonic acid is found in animal products. the logical conclusion is that eliminating animal products may lessen angiogensis as well as inflammatory processes that coincide with PC. It's an interesting theory, whether it plays out in practice remains to be seen. There is what is called an anti-inflammatory diet that centers around decreasing PGE2 levels. If anyone is interested, I can go into detail. peace and healing energy to all! tk
