Egg Consumption Linked to Prostate Cancer

egg9.jpgThe egg industry is notorious for abusing animals and deceiving consumers, and now research shows that eating eggs can be deadly for men. A study recently published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Cancer Prevention Research confirms that eggs aren't just loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol - they're linked to deadly prostate cancer as well.

Led by Dr. Erin Richman from the Harvard School of Public Health, this fourteen-year-long study examined the eating habits and health of over 27,000 men. Those who consumed more than two and a half eggs each week were over 80 percent more likely to die from prostate cancer. "Eating eggs may increase risk of developing a lethal form of prostate cancer among healthy men," concluded the researchers.

As scientific research reveals the health risks of egg consumption, MFA's undercover investigators are exposing the routine cruelties inflicted on egg-laying hens. Our recent investigation into Sparboe Farms found hens crammed into filthy battery cages, workers burning off the beaks of chicks without painkillers, and other abuses that are standard within the egg industry.

Thankfully, it's never been easier to avoid the cruelty, cholesterol, and increased risk of prostate cancer that come with eating eggs. Please visit ChooseVeg.com for hundreds of delicious, egg-free recipes and helpful tips on cooking without eggs.
