    Omega 3 Fish Oils linked to higher Prostate Cancer Risk

    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/263179.php

    Another question mark in using supplements.
    Ask your doc. before any change in your diet and
    Have your prostate checked regularly by SPs

    As I understand it, there are studies that go both ways on O3 and Prostate cancer.

    for example from the comments.
    "This paper found "Men consuming fish oil in later life had a lower risk of advanced prostate cancer [HR (95%CI): 0.43 (0.19, 0.95)], no association was found for early life or midlife consumption.""

    However I am not a medical researcher, hell I've never even played on on TV.

    Also what sort of consumption is required to go from the low to the high group. 1 gram a day, downing fish oil pills like they were candy?

    Thank you for posting this info. I've been using Omega 3 off and on for the past 3 years or so. An opthalmologist recommended that i take it in order to help my eyes. I've been suffering from a couple episodes of 'dry eye' over the past 3 years (currently since May) and one of the eye doctors suggested Omega 3 could help me get rid of the symptoms faster.

    So now i have to worry about prostate cancer? It sucks!!!
