Was wondering if anyone has heard of this and if so how much to you have to eat? I don't like it but if if works i'd be willing to force myself to eat it..I'm stage 3 C currently on Yervoy..

Wow. Okra tastes better than I thought. I got one yesterday, washed it and ate it raw. It had no bad taste to it at all. Much better than some of the other stuff I force myself to eat like broccili (sp).

I'm thinking i'm gona get a try, don't think it would hurt anything...yuck

They really don't say anything about how it was cooked.  They mention "Southern Diet", which makes me think "Breaded and fried", which is exactly how I like my okra.  I'll have to try it raw, since I'm sure that frying negates some (most?) of the health benefits.  Les is the same way.

You can use okra in many dishes or casseroles.  I have eaten it as a young child as my grandparents were in Missouri and I have never had it breaded and fried.

Dont know about its  Anti Cancer properties. But its a quite popular side dish in southern India.

Heres a simple recipe, if you are interested
