Milk consumption is a risk factor for prostate cancer: meta-analysis of case-control studies.

Men who regularly consumed milk may have a high tendency to develop prostate cancer.

This study evaluated the correlation between milk intake and prostate cancer risk. Researchers systematically reviewed 11 case-control studies that examined milk consumption as a risk factor for prostate cancer. They found a significant elevation in prostate cancer risk among subjects who regularly consumed milk. The findings of this study indicate that frequent consumption of milk may contribute positively to the development of prostate cancer.
