Remember? False study about Vit. E causing prostate cancer, when it turned out to be synthetic, man-made chemicals for Vit. E that were used in the so-called study, instead of whole-foods, non-chemical, non-synthetic Vit. E supplements? Here we go again - a new "study" with high fatty acids in the bloodstream, even though none of the participants took omega-3 supplements, was concluded that it was omega-3 supplements that CAUSED the high fatty acids in the bloodstream, therefore CAUSING prostate cancer, with a side note in the study that high trans fats in the blood was the "best" to avoid prostate cancer - Read the rebuttal and notice how the "study" was skewed to be against dietary supplements once again, even without using any of them in the "study"

Absurd Study Claims Omega-3 Fats Raise Prostate Cancer Risk

July 31, 2013
“How do you explain the fact that reporter after reporter and news outlet after news outlet conveniently equated higher blood levels of DHA with 'fish oil supplement taking?'
There’s almost no other explanation other than a strong anti-supplement bias and a desire for shocking headlines. And any doubt about the objectivity of the researchers should have been abandoned after one of them—Dr. Alan Kristy—told reporters,13 'We’ve shown once again that use of nutritional supplements may be harmful.'”
Indeed, Dr. Kristy sounds like a spokesperson for Senator Durbin’s hypocritically idiotic supplement bill, which threatens the supplement industry by granting the FDA more power to regulate supplements as if they were drugs, potentially putting supplement companies out of business.
 Do Omega-3s Raise Men’s Prostate Cancer Risk? Hardly!
Foods rich in omega-3 fats have previously been shown to prevent prostate cancer from spreading. One such clinical study (opposed to the featured study, which was observational and therefore cannot establish causality) was published in the British Journal of Cancer14 in 2006. This study found that while omega-6 fats (the kind found in most vegetable oils) increased the spread of prostatic tumor cells into bone marrow, the spread of cancer cells was blocked by omega-3 fats, suggesting that a diet rich in omega-3 fats could potentially inhibit the disease in men with early stage prostate cancer...
... previous research18 has shown that the higher blood levels of DHA found in the featured study is not necessarily indicative of higher fish consumption. In fact, low-fat diets can increase DHA levels in much the same way omega-3 supplementation can... {sidebar: study did NOT include diet habits of participants, as per "TIME" Magazine quote}

  1. This study is really absurd since there are a lot of synthetic omega-3 supplements that are out in the market. This is a warning given by Dr. Mercola which he said that be careful on taking synthetic supplements and may end-up doing harm than good. His article also states why men acquired prostate health problem at organic saw palmetto articles. This is far beyond a research too.
