Taking 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 children.
