British researchers say they've pinpointed certain foods that may raise the risk of prostate cancer. Scientists looked at data from 12 different studies that included close to 9,000 men.

They found meat and some dairy products carry a specific hormone called IGF-1 that was linked to an increase in prostate cancer.

Men in the study with high levels of IGF-1 were 40 percent more likely to develop prostate cancer than others with lower levels.
