higher levels of omega 3s linked to aggressive prostate cancer

I am assuming that the risk is relative risk. What the actual risk is might be very small. Or it might not.

If the idea that eating fish prevents heart disease came from the esquimo diet and that has shown to be incorrect. The Inuit on traditional diets do get heart disease. Or maybe they die sooner from stroke.

Did anyone consider that the higher rate of prostate cancer from eating fish is do to the fish protein, the high fat content (omega threes aren't the only fat in fish) or contaminants?

I cannot explain what appears to be the beneficial effects of trans fats.

Those with higher levels of omega 3 probably eat more fish.Fish is animal protein which Dr Campbell links to cancer.So,My best guess would be that its the fish that elevates cancer risk.But them I'm not sure.
