Eggs Connected to an Increase Risk of Prostate Cancer

In The Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (HPFS), a study observing over fifty thousand male health professionals since 1986 noticed that men who consumed ≥2.5 eggs per week had a 1.8-fold increased risk of developing lethal prostate cancer compared with men who consumed <0.5 eggs per week. However, this study found no association between consumption of eggs and risk of deadly prostate cancer after diagnosis.


If you have had prostate cancer (PC), or are at high risk of the disease, it would be prudent to stop eating more than an occasional egg, especially if you live in North America.
