omega-3 fish oil supplements may increase the risk of aggressive prostate cancer by 70%
Fish-oil supplements credited with a range of health benefits could trigger prostate cancer.
Experts found that omega-3 fatty acids may raise the risk of the most lethal form of the disease by more than 70 per cent.
Researchers warned against omega-3 pills, and recommended eating just one or two meals of oily fish per week.
Fish-oil supplements are said to protect against heart attacks and strokes, stave off arthritis, boost brain power and prevent behaviour disorders in
Pretty amazing, considering how often fish oil is foisted upon people by the media and in doctor's offices.
If true, (looking for the actual study now), this will be an earthquake in the supplement world.
