Evidence suggests that egg intake may be implicated in the aetiology of sex hormone-related cancers. However, dose–response relationships between egg intake and such cancers are unclear. Thus, we conducted a dose–response meta-analysis to summarise the dose–response relationships between egg consumption and the risk of breast, prostate and gynaecological cancers. A literature search was performed using PubMed and Embase up to April 2015 to identify relevant prospective observational studies… 
Dietary Protein Sources and Incidence of Breast Cancer: A Dose-Response Meta-Analysis of Prospective Studies
TLDR
There was a null association between poultry, fish, egg, nuts, total milk, and whole milk intake and breast cancer risk, whereas higher soy food and skim milk intake may reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Association between dietary intake and risk of ovarian cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Recommendations to green leafy vegetables, allium vegetables, fiber, flavonoids and green tea intake for ovarian cancer prevention are supported, and acrylamide, nitrate, water disinfectants and polychlorinated biphenyls were significantly associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
Title Dietary Protein Sources and Incidence of Breast Cancer: A Dose-Response Meta-Analysis of Prospective Studies
TLDR
There was a null association between poultry, fish, egg, nuts, total milk, and whole milk intake and breast cancer risk, whereas higher soy food and skim milk intake may reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Nutrition and prostate cancer: review of the evidence
TLDR
The evidence on any potential association between diet and prostate cancer is weak, and the reductionist approach considering individual nutritional factors is not suitable, and conducting more observational studies or small randomised trials evaluating the impact ofindividual nutritional factors on prostate cancer will not bring further answers.
Egg Consumption in Relation to Glioma: A Case–Control Study
TLDR
An inverse association between egg consumption at the amount of almost 2 eggs/week and odds of glioma is found and further studies are required to examine this association.
Animal foods and postmenopausal breast cancer risk: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
It was found that dietary egg intake but no other animal foods was associated with a higher risk of postmenopausal breast cancer and further research on the potential mechanisms underlying this association is warranted.
Egg consumption and risk of all-cause and cause-specific mortality in an Italian adult population
TLDR
Among Italian adults, high egg consumption leads to an increased risk of all-cause and CVD mortality, with the risk being evident even at the recommended intake of 2–4 eggs per week.
Egg consumption and human health: an umbrella review of observational studies
TLDR
An umbrella review showed a substantial no association between egg consumption and a number of health outcomes, including cancer, cardiovascular and metabolic disorders, and additional studies exploring confounding factors are needed to ascertain the potential detrimental effects.
Nature, Nurture, and Cancer Risks: Genetic and Nutritional Contributions to Cancer.
TLDR
Convincing evidence for association was found only for the intake of alcohol and whole grains in relation to colorectal cancer risk and among the examined gene-diet interactions, only one had moderately strong evidence.
Moderate egg consumption and all-cause and specific-cause mortality in the Spanish European Prospective into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC-Spain) study
TLDR
This study shows no association between moderate egg consumption, up to 1 egg per day, and main causes of mortality in a large free-living Mediterranean population.

TLDR
The authors' analyses provided no evidence of a significant influence of egg consumption on prostate cancer incidence and mortality, however, more studies, particularly large prospective studies, are needed.
Egg consumption and breast cancer risk: a meta-analysis
TLDR
The meta-analysis results showed that egg consumption was associated with increased breast cancer risk among the European, Asian and postmenopausal population and those who consumed ≥2, ≤5/week.
Consumption of animal foods and endometrial cancer risk: a systematic literature review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The meta-analysis suggests that meat consumption, particularly red meat, increases endometrial cancer risk and the current literature does not support an association with dairy products, while the evidence is inconsistent for poultry, fish, and eggs.
A Pooled Analysis of 12 Cohort Studies of Dietary Fat, Cholesterol and Egg Intake and Ovarian Cancer
TLDR
Overall, fat, cholesterol and egg intakes were not associated with ovarian cancer risk, but a weakly positive, but non-linear association for saturated fat intake at very high intakes merits further investigation.
Choline and betaine intake is inversely associated with breast cancer risk: A two‐stage case‐control study in China
TLDR
It is suggested that consumption of choline and betaine is inversely associated with the risk of breast cancer, and is probably modified by folate intake.
Meat, fish and egg intake and risk of breast cancer
TLDR
There is no evidence that intake of meat or fish during mid‐life and later was associated with risk of breast cancer, over categories of nutrient and food intake in the Nurses' Health Study.
Dietary Risk Factors for Ovarian Cancer: The Adventist Health Study (United States)
TLDR
The association of dietary variables with either all ovarian cancer cases or postmenopausal cases was tested using proportional hazards regression with adjustment for age and other covariates and a weak protective association was found with low fat, but not whole milk.
Statin Use and Risk of Prostate Cancer: A Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
TLDR
Evidence is provided supporting the hypothesis that statins reduce the risk of both total PCa and clinically important advanced PCa, and the change in trend of reporting risk from positive to negative in statin users between 1993 and 2011 is shown.
Animal foods, protein, calcium and prostate cancer risk: the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition
TLDR
The hypothesis that a high intake of protein or calcium from dairy products may increase the risk for prostate cancer is supported.
