Higher dietary fat and fatty acid intake is associated with increased risk of incident prostate cancer
A total of 229 men were diagnosed with PCa by prostate biopsy. Among all nutrients, increased risk of PCa was associated with intake of dietary fat scaled by the total caloric intake, particularly saturated fatty acid (SFA) and trans fatty acid (TFA). There was an increased risk of PCa with increasing intake of monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) and cholesterol.
Dietary modification of fatty acid intake may reduce risk of PCa.
