(NDJ) – Men who eat fried foods more than once per week are at a higher risk for contracting prostate cancer than those who don’t, according to data published in ‘The Prostate’ magazine.

The likely hood of men developing prostate cancer reportedly increases by 33 to 37 percent when eating fried foods on a regular basis versus men who eat the same items less than once a month.
Risk of contracting prostate cancer increases as men age and genetics disposition play an important factor as well but researchers state that the type of food being eaten also plays a major role in developing prostate cancer or not.
Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle analysed data retrieved from studies conducted on 1,549 men with prostate cancer and 1,492 healthy men but who had a profile similar to the first group.
Participants were asked to keep a detailed log of their food intake. Researchers also took in account genetic predisposition of the men to develop prostate cancer.
The researchers found that there was a definite link between men with prostate cancer and the types of food they ate, in particularly foods that were fried and eaten more than once a week.
Researchers are still investigating the cause of the link between prostate cancer and fried foods and the data must still be reviewed once more for accuracy.
The Cancer Research UK institute says that it is still too early to say for certain that fried foods most definitely increase the chances for developing prostate cancer.
Last year, a study revealed that men consuming fatty fish would reduce their likely hood of dying from prostate cancer by 40 percent.
