Three Eggs In a week Potential Prostate Cancer

Tuesday, February 14, 2012
In the egg there are a variety of essential nutrients from protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and good fats. But a new study claims that eating three eggs a week can significantly increase a man's risk of dying from prostate cancer.

The researchers found that men who consumed more than 2.5 eggs per week likely to develop prostate cancer by 81 percent.

According to them, the damage may be caused by the content of a large amount of cholesterol or choline (a nutrient that helps cells to function properly) which is found in eggs. The findings were based on observations made by a team of researchers from Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, who studied the eating habits of 27,000 people over a period of 14 years.

The study found no significant relationship between the amount of meat consumed by the tumor risk. But the high number of deaths from cancer would be found in many of those who claim to eat eggs.
