A new study has been published which indicates that eating three eggs a week may lead to increased risk of prostate cancer:
Scientists at Harvard School of Medicine, who studied the eating habits of 27,000 men over 14 years, suspect the damage is done by the cholesterol and choline in eggs.199 of the men in the study developed lethal prostate cancer. The men ate the most eggs at were at a significantly higher risk than those who ate less eggs. No significant link was established with any other food.
Although there are potentially other lifestyle factors involved this article cautions against eating them too.
As eggs are popular among the paleo community, should we be drastically be limiting egg intake or perhaps just eating egg whites?
