Perhaps with the new treatment he would receive, and with a little luck, he would be part of a new curve with a higher median and a longer tail, which would go far, very far, as far as natural death in old age. Stephen Jay Gould died twenty years later of another disease. He had had time to pursue one of the most admirable scientific careers of his era. Two months before his death, he was able to witness the publication of his magnum opus, The Structure of Evolutionary Theory. c The lesson that this great biologist teaches us is simple: Statistics are information, not condemnation.
To understand the molecular mechanisms behind these data, Dr. Ornish decided to investigate how changes in behavior influence the expression of genes within the prostate cells themselves. He took RNA samples from the prostates of test subjects before the start of his lifestyle modification program and again three months later. 5 It stimulated genes that had a preventive effect against cancer and inhibited those that favored the development of the disease. One of the subjects, Jack McClure, had been diagnosed with prostate cancer six years earlier.
Of the forty-nine patients who hadn’t changed anything in their lifestyles and who had relied simply on regular surveillance of the disease, six saw their cancer worsen and had to undergo the ablation of their prostate, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Conversely, none of the forty-one patients who had followed the program of physical and mental health required recourse to such treatments. In the first group, the PSA level (which reflects the tumor’s growth) had increased by 6 percent on average, not including the men who had had to withdraw from the study because of the increase in their disease (their level of PSA was still more worrisome and would have greatly increased that number).
