It seems you do not understand what risk and what hazard means.

If you play one game of Russian Roulette in your life then you have a 16% risk of dying from a bullet in your head. The risk to developing a fatal cancer from eating animal products throughout your life is not much different.
The 'may' in this context is the uncertainty that refers to an activity which eggeaters are also doing which may cause cancer that the non-eggeaters aren't doing that was not identified or corrected for in the study. You need to find a reason and it may be that the eggeaters are also eating dairy and meat but it may also be that eggeaters enjoy building stuff with egg boxes and painting eggshells with carcinogenic oil paints.
