Eggs Increase Prostate Cancer Risks? New Study Suggests So

If you have been in the habit of eating too many eggs, perhaps it’s time to change that habit? Or not?

We just found the below news article about a study conducted by experts which led to the conclusion that eating as many as 3 eggs daily could significantly increase one’s chances of having prostate cancer.

Read the news article yourself below to see whether eggs can increase prostate cancer risks or not:

CAMBRIDGE – University scientists released shocking news about egg consumption being linked directly to increased risk of getting prostate cancer.

In the United States in 2007 (the most recent year for which numbers are available), 223,307 men developed prostate cancer, and 29,093 men died from the disease.

As such the recent news that egg consumption increases the risk of this type of cancer is alarming and the message should be heard loud and clear.

According to scientists from the prestigious Harvard University, men who consume at least 2 1/2 eggs per week, are 80 percent more likely to contract prostate cancer.

Egg consumption is directly linked to increased risk in prostate cancer, according to Harvard University scientists

A study involving 27,000 men, who’s daily eating habits were tracked over a period of 14 years, brought the shocking discovery of the connection between egg consumption and increased cancer risk to light.

Scientists also discovered that consuming poultry, red and processed meats did not increase the prostate cancer risk.

The high levels of cholesterol and choline presence in eggs could be the cause for the increased cancer risk.  Choline is a substance that assists the functioning of cells in eggs.

Cancer expert Sarah Williams states that “there have been earlier studies to establish a connection between egg consumption and an increase in prostate cancer, but the findings were contradictory.”

Other experts who were informed about the results of the study, are not totally convinced that eggs are the culprit but state that ‘unhealthy eating habits’ could be the cause of the prostate cancer risk increase.

Doctors have always recommended that individuals should not consume more than three eggs per week because the high cholesterol levels in eggs could lead to increased heart attacks and strokes. Read more here.

Whether this study should be taken seriously or not remains to be seen.
