A recently published research examining the link between the consumption of eggs, red meat, poultry and prostate cancer revealed that by consuming 2.5 eggs per week, men increased their risk for a deadly form of prostate cancer by 81 per cent, compared with men who consumed less than half an egg per week. These results were obtained from following dietary habits of 27,607 men for 14 years. Eating poultry and processed red meat also increased the risk of death for men who already had prostate cancer.
