How could it be propaganda from drug companies if, by your own admission, there are hundreds of studies testifying to the health benefits of these fish oils and only one which delineates its potential risk?
Even though this study doesn’t give any reason to shun fatty fish or their oils, it’s a nice segue into a related issue: A bad diet plus fish oil is still a bad diet. And given the oxidation-prone nature of all polyunsaturated fats, a massive intake of omega-3’s – despite their brilliance in moderation – could potentially do more harm than good. If you’re trying to restore a healthy ratio of omega fats, avoiding omega-6-rich foods (and supplementing wisely) is a better strategy than chugging fish oil like a frat boy with gin.

Ok, I figured this story should go into the 'Current News' section as it is 'Current News' on the Sky Website:
Taking health supplements with omega-3 fatty acids can increase the chances of contracting prostate cancer, according to new research.
Omega-3 fatty acids, found naturally in oily fish and lauded for their anti-inflammatory properties, were found to increase the risk of high-grade disease by 71%.
Taking omega-3 was also associated with a 44% greater chance of developing low-grade prostate cancer.
Overall, the fatty acids raised the risk of all prostate cancers by 43%.
A US team of scientists compared blood samples from 834 men diagnosed with prostate cancer and 1,393 participants without the disease.
High blood concentrations of all three omega-3 fatty acids commonly found in supplements EPA, DPA and DHA were linked to the findings.
So, what do you think about this??
Companies bring out these Pills, Vitamins, Omega's and don't even know the consequences of their actions!
I can see a lot of 'Law Suits' being bought against these Companies! I think this discovery is appalling, putting peoples lives at risk.... I have always said that we are like Rats being tested on by TPTB.
