Men Who Eat 3 Eggs a Week at Heightened Risk of Prostate Cancer

A group of researchers from the department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) have concluded that eating eggs may increase men’s risk of developing the more lethal form of prostate cancer, similar to eating red and processed meat. The study was published recently in Cancer Prevention Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

They carried the study using dietary data from 27,607 men who had been followed from 1994 to 2008 and who had no cancer at the start of the period.

They found that men who ate 2.5 eggs or more a week had a significant 81% higher risk of developing lethal prostate cancer compared to men who ate fewer than 0.5 eggs a week on average.

The average American consumes 246 eggs per year — roughly 5 eggs per week!
