Sort of. He’s talking about one particular study’s questionable accuracy.
Bottom line: this appears to be an unfortunate combination of questionable science, unwarranted conclusions, and dreadful media coverage. The well documented evidence for myriad benefits of high dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids on both physical and mental health is very strong.
As far as I can tell there has only been one study. And every article about this is referencing that one study. I could be wrong but I have only found one study.
Makes one wonder why it was published.
Another article. Specifically, the data for which these “scientists” used to derive their silly conclusion was obtained from a study looking at Selenium and Vitamin E – not Omega-3s! Any data regarding Omega-3s was not adequately controlled, marginally well understood, or even explained, to give rise to any conclusions whatsoever. A single blood test is ludicrous and the differences in levels were small at best. Plus, it says nothing about supplements while foolishly leading to a conclusion that the essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids (the fats we must have) cause cancer. I have gone over just a few of the reasons above, but there are actually countless factors that make this study absolutely irrelevant toward any conclusion regarding Omega-3 Supplements and Prostate Cancer. Ultimately and most importantly, I will continue taking my Omega-3 Supplements everyday just as I have for the last 30+ years.
