Which foods are linked to a higher risk of advanced prostate cancer? (That’s the only kind that matters.)

Scientists pooled data from 15 studies on more than 842,000 men in North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.

Those who ate at least four eggs a week had a 14 percent higher risk of advanced prostate cancer than those who ate less than three eggs a month. In contrast, those who ate at least four (3 oz.) servings of poultry a week had a 17 percent fewer risk than those who ate less than two servings a month.

There was a hint that red and processed meat was linked to a higher risk. Tomatoes weren’t linked to risk.

What to do:  Stay tuned. The links with meat, poultry, and eggs were largely seen in North America, so it’s possible that something else about people who eat those foods explains the links.
