A new study has found that taking fish oil supplements may increase a man's risk for prostate cancer.
Researchers at The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Reasearch Center in Seattle confirmed an earlier study that linked high levels of omega-3 fatty acid and risk for high grade prostate cancer.
Participants who had higher blood levels of omega-3 fatty acid were associated with a 71 percent increased risk for high-grade prostate cancer. Fish oil supplements which are high in omega-3s are taken by many people for their apparent heart health benefits. Experts say more research is needed before men should change their supplement intake.
