Omega 3 and Prostate Cancer - Not good news

I just visited my doctor to have my PSA (prostate specific antigen) checked and all was well.  But then I read an article that said Omega 3 fish oil can INCREASE your chance for prostate cancer.  Everyone has said the Omega 3’s  are great for you. Now, maybe not.  A new study conducted by Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center found that men who consumed large doses of Omega 3 fish oils had a 43% increased risk of developing prostate cancer.  Also the type of prostate cancer they develop is 71% more likely to be high grade which can be more fatal.  So maybe we should skip the fish oil supplement and exercise more.
