You can't win for losing - Omega 3
billh99 posted:
A new study shows that increases in Omega 3 increases the risk of aggressive Prostate Cancer.

And that trans fat reduced that risk.

More details in the PC forum at the above link.

But as someone that has both CAD (70% blockage of the left main and CABG) and a moderate risk PC (3+7) & prostatectomy I am going to maintain my consumption of fish oil and fatty fish.
