Saturated Fat Intake and Prostate Cancer Aggressiveness: Results from the Population-based North Carolina-Louisiana Prostate Cancer Project - Full Text ArticleBACKGROUND:
Epidemiological and laboratory evidence supports a role for cholesterol in prostate cancer (PC). Dietary saturated fat content impacts serum cholesterol levels. However, epidemiological associations between saturated fat and PC aggressiveness are inconsistent. We hypothesized that high saturated fat intake would be associated with increased PC aggressiveness, and that statin use would modify this association.
