On if chicken causes cancer:

We are aware of the UK-based study on poultry intake and the risk of cancer. This research was an abstract presented at a scientific conference and should be considered exploratory work until more details on the study can be made publicly available, and it has gone through the peer-review process. This study, by design, is an associational study, which makes it unable to prove cause and effect. Therefore, the study cannot reliably explain the observed results pertaining to poultry intake and a higher risk of cancer. Findings from the current study are also at odds with previous research and the larger body of evidence on this topic, which suggests poultry intake, including chicken, may be associated with a reduced risk for some cancers.
