Omega-3 Fats Cause Prosate Cancer? Really?

A recent study suggests that omega-3 fats, from fish and fish oil, may increase the risk of prostate cancer by 43%

The study suggests that omega-3 fatty acids can increase the risk of advanced prostate cancer by 71%

The difference in omega-3 fatty acids between the “No Cancer” group and the “Advanced Cancer” group was just one-fifth of one percent (0.22%)

The researchers did not look into what the subjects consumed or supplemented with, they only tested their blood

Other studies have discovered an inverse link between omega-3 fat intake and prostate cancer risk

Countries with a customarily high intake of omega-3 have a tendency to be low-risk areas for cancer
