Eating pan-fried red meat may increase your risk of developing advanced prostate cancer. Men who ate 1.5 servings of pan-fried red meat a week were 30% more likely to develop advanced prostate cancer compared to men who did not eat fried red meat. If a man consumed more than 2.5 servings of pan-fried red meat a week, the risk of advanced prostate cancer rose to 40%.
The study was reported in the August issue of Carcinogensis.
Bottom Line: Pan-fried red meat may taste good but it just may be deleterious to your prostate gland. If you are going to eat pan-fried red meat, I suggest you do it only on an occasional basis.
