Cholesterol feeds prostate cancer

High cholesterol levels accelerate the growth of prostate tumours, research has found.

A team from Boston's Children Hospital also found that cholesterol-lowering statin drugs may inhibit prostate cancer growth.

The findings may help explain why prostate cancer is more common in the West, where diets tend to be high in cholesterol.

Details are published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
