Omega-3 and prostate cancer are making headlines after the latest study. There is good and bad about getting your health information off the Internet. The good is that you have all the latest studies at your fingertips. And the bad is that you have all the latest studies at your fingertips. The media loves to jump on the latest story that goes against all the other evidence. How does this relate to omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and your prostate you ask? Well there are countless studies on the benefits of taking omega-3 fatty acids for prostate health, but then one recent study on omega-3 and prostate cancer was published stating the opposite, that omega-3 fatty acids can cause prostate cancer. That leaves people like us who don’t know whether to keep heading up stream or turn around and forget everything we have ever known about these healthy oils.

In summary, the new Omega 3 study was flawed. It didn't test directly the effects of Omega 3, but rather looked back on the data after the fact, without looking at the KNOWN prostate cancer risk factors, and simply said that people with higher levels of Omega 3 in their blood had higher risks of having cancer. But, they didn't mention if people were taking Omega 3 FOR their cancer, which might explain the higher levels. AND, it doesn't say if the higher levels of Omega 3 were due to the body's inability to process and use it effectively, which was why they had cancer in the first place. If you were thinking about quitting fish oil because of this study, DON'T. There are dozens of other scientifically performed studies that show that fish oil is VERY beneficial, especially BEFORE you have cancer. Omega 6 is needed by the body for normal functions, but we Americans eat way too much Omega 6 already, so balancing it with Omega 3 is the way to go. AND, they didn't mention anything about Omega 3's effect on reducing heart disease, which affects both men and women. I easily take 1g fish oil with each meal (3 times per day), and it reduces my inflammation and FM symptoms greatly. That wasn't mentioned either. Good luck, folks.
