The Role of Red Meat in Prostate Cancer (August 1998)

Diet seems to be a major factor in putting American men 50 years and older at risk of developing prostate cancer.

A medical study looking at The Role of Red Meat in Prostate Cancer found men with diets loaded in fat, especially red meat, are more at risk of prostate cancer than those who cut back on fat. Men with the highest amount of fat in their diets -- pork, beef or lamb -- had a 79 percent greater risk of advanced prostate cancer than men with the lowest amounts, the study says.

Except for butter, fats from dairy products and fish were not linked to increased risk of advanced prostate cancer. This doesn't mean men must become vegetarians, researchers give skinless chicken two thumbs up, claiming chicken is actually "inversely associated" with the risk of developing prostate cancer.

Various saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids were a risk for advanced prostate cancer, the study says. Why fats are linked with prostate cancer is still a mystery, but the evidence was overwhelming enough for researchers to recommend men 40 years and older reduce the amount of fat in their diets
