Warning: That tasty hamburger could increase your prostate cancer risk by as much as 40%

by , 26 July 2013

If you're a man and you like to indulge in pan fried meat, a recent study suggests you may have to rethink your cooking habits starting TODAY. Read on to discover why…

A recent study from the University of Southern California and the Cancer Prevention Institute of California has found that frequently indulging in pan-fried red meat could raise your risk of prostate cancer significantly.

The link between pan-fried meats and prostate cancer

In the study, researchers found that men who ate more than 1.5 servings of pan-fried red meat a week had a 30% higher risk of advanced prostate cancer.

Eating more than 2.5 servings a week led to a 40% higher risk of prostate cancer!

The biggest offenders were hamburgers. They were linked to a greater risk of cancer.

What’s the reason behind the rise in prostate cancer risk?

According to Nutrition & Healing, researchers think the raised risk is a result of carcinogen accumulation that comes with cooking meat at high temperatures.

They found that men who ate mostly baked poultry had a lower risk of advanced prostate cancer. However, pan-frying poultry also increased risk for the disease.

So if you’re looking to prevent prostate cancer, take a look at how often you’re indulging in pan-fried meats. It’s not worth the risk of prostate cancer.
