Diet and prostate cancer

Dairy products, pork and processed meat increase the risk of prostate cancer according to the Clue II study conducted in Washington County, Maryland. More than five servings of dairy foods per week increased risk while cheese consumption at least five times a week increased risk of both total and high-stage prostate cancer.

Processed meats such as hot dogs, sausages, bacon and lunch meat increased the risk of high-stage prostate cancer

The authors observed that pork consumption also increased the risk; many processed meat products are made of pork.

Earlier studies have demonstrated an increased risk of prostate cancer with the use of dairy products.
