    Then how come Japanese men have a much lower risk of prostate cancer than American men? Their diets are shown to consist of much higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids from fish, while the American diet consists of higher amounts of omega 6 acids from meat.

    What were the backgrounds and ethnicities of the men used in this study?

    What type of omega 3 fatty acids and fish oil products were consumed? How pure were they?

    Were there other factors in their diets?

    This reminds me of the that bogus study a few years back saying Vitamin E caused heart disease.

    I don't buy it

    Because of Green Tea and Saki.

    I really more confused now about Omega-3's. I just added it to my TrenA cycle to control my blood pressure. I had an enlarge prostate scare but everything is back to normal. Looks like I'm dumping my fish oil tabs now.

    I wouldn't there's tons of studies and info proving the benefits of fish oil (omega 3) going back decades.
    It would be foolish to stop taking it do to this one article.

    They already have! For hot tea anyway.
    I don't trust the people responsible for this study. Apparently they also did a study that showed trans fats protect against prostate cancer...
    This is a much better article on the study.
    "Within the prostate cancer cases, their plasma phospholipid fatty acid profile was divided into quartiles. The lowest risk group had < 3.68% tissue levels (plasma phospholipids) VS. highest prostate CA risk group being at > 5.3%. This is quite a narrow range of plasma phospholipid fatty acid concentration to draw conclusions from. Moreover, the mean EPA + DPA + DPA fatty acid % in plasma phospholipids was only 4.48% in controls (non-cancer group), and 4.66% in the total cancer case group. Again, an even narrower range from which caution must be taken before drawing sweeping or extreme conclusions and interpretation of this data."
