Omega-3 Fatty Acids Fight Prostate Cancer

A 2013 study led by Alan Krystal published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that high blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids increased the risk of prostate cancer by 71 percent. Naturally, this study caused controversy in the supplement industry. A new study led by Kathryn Meier found just the opposite— the omega-3s EPA and DHA prevented prostate cancer cell growth. The study examined the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on cultures of prostate cancer cells grown in the laboratory. We do not know if these results apply to naturally living humans.
