So much for the once touted health benefits of seafood and Omega-3. It's not just supplements, but eating fish itself. Looks like eating fish as often as only once a week is unhealthy. The low rate of cancer in Asian peoples was always credited to their high intake of Omega-3/seafood. Maybe it's something else in their diet thats been overlooked, and it's not the seafood. Something else thats counteracting the Omega-3.

This study brought to you by those who gave us global cooling, global warming, climate change, eggs are unhealthy, a fetus isn’t a baby, a fetus can’t feel pain, and shrimp on treadmills!

Sorry - but this is just total B.S. Who FUNDED the research ? Omega 3 fatty acids from fish oils cannot be patented ... no big money for Big Pharma...

Follow the money lost to natural remedies by Big Pharma ...

If this study is correct, my instincts were correct. My own observation tells me vigorous exercise works lot better than supplements for heart health. My BP is lower, my blood sugar is lower, my arrhythmia has disappeared, my hip joint pain has disappeared, my knee pain has disappeared, my lower back pain is much improved, my weight is down to normal, without taking any omega-3 supplements or any other supplements. All I do is walk at least 3 times a week 18 holes on different golf courses. Only time I use a riding cart is when the course is very hilly, and temperature is above 77 degrees Farenheit.

Everyone should know what the federal government’s diet recommendations are, and should do the opposite.

You would also have to compare how an increased risk of prostate cancer compares to a decreased risk of heart disease - if any. It kills about 1 in 36, although most men over 80 will have cancer cells in their prostate. So if it helps with heart disease, it may still be well worth it.

I did find this interesting:

“Race. Prostate cancer occurs about 60% more often in African American men than in white American men and when diagnosed is more likely to be advanced. However, Japanese and African males living in their native countries have a low incidence of prostate cancer. Rates for these groups increase sharply when they immigrate to the U.S.”

That would seem to indicate something other than eating fish is to blame.

Being alive increases the risk of death. Still a 100% chance.

I doubled down on Omega 3-6-9 combo capsules upon reading this study.

I have been eating loads of ocean fish since my youth. I’ve been taking fish oil and Omega 3 - 6 for close to 40 years.

My prostate (according to a Doctor to examines them for a living) is perfect.

.....and I’m a year older than Joe Theismann.

You’re not supposed to gorge on the stuff. When it’s added to something like Healthy Choice butter substitute or similar it is a benefit.

The assessment of increased prostate cancer risk is statistically unsound. The antioxidant effects of omega 3 and the “vascular biology” cocktail of supplements/meds to reduce inflammation of arterial walls of the heart vessels—outweigh the so called “risk” . Cold water fish eating populations, with a genetic exception of Finland, by and large have very low heart disease rate. Finland has vodka to offset the effect, and they smoke like chimneys.

I've decided that I'm going to eat whatever the hell I want and live forever.

So far...so good.

I’m skeptical of supplements because conventional USA heath care wisdom says if they were really good for you, they should be costing 100x as much and boosting the profits of big Pharma and padding the FDA coffers who work for big Pharma.

(sarcasm intended)

Realistically we’ve become a country where almost everything we see or read in the news is a potential fix, a ruse, propaganda, and a scam, and so little is objective and honest. I watched this movie at the recommendation of an internist who is as cynical as I am. I don’t trust the FDA or MSM or drug companies. http://burzynskimovie.com/

Omega-3 fatty acids and prostate cancer? Oh, really?

I do not have a dog in the prostate cancer fight, ahem. But I do find if I take a couple Omega-3s a day (I use plant-based not fish) it does help with mental clarity and focus. And it keeps my coat glossy. Maybe it’s just me.
