New Study Finds Fish Oil Increases Cancer Risk

Journal of the National Cancer Institute recently published evidence that fish-derived omega-3s up the chance of prostate cancer.

According to a recent Journal of the National Cancer Institute study, the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids from marine animals leads to an increased risk of developing prostate cancer. The study’s lead author, Theodore Brasky of Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, found that there was a 43-percent greater risk of prostate cancer in people with high levels of marine-derived omega 3s compared to those with low concentrations. The new study sheds light on the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which three years ago was revised to recommend Americans increase their intake of seafood and fish. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men.
