News out of Seattle is sure to fuel confusion about fish oil supplements. Take this email I got yesterday from a friend. “Ok, I give up. Should I take them? Throw them away? June 29 — Fish oil may prevent breast cancer. Today (July 11) — Fish oil may increase risk of prostate cancer.”

First, the latest news. A study by scientists at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle linked eating a lot of oily fish or taking potent fish oil supplements to a 43% increased risk for prostate cancer overall, and a 71% increased risk for aggressive prostate cancer. Their report was published online in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

They came to this conclusion by looking at blood samples of men taking part in the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial. (That trial, dubbed SELECT, found that selenium supplements did nothing to prevent prostate cancer, while vitamin E supplements slightly increased prostate cancer risk. Blood samples from men who had developed prostate cancer over the course of the trial had more omega-3 fats than those of men who didn’t develop prostate cancer.

Omega-3s in balance

What’s so special about fish oil? It’s loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. These must come from food, since our bodies can’t make them. more

Please accept my full respect to you, both, for your bisecting all the findings and all research works by your vast knowledge and backed with lot of experiences.

We need to understand that all research works are keep and being changed from time to time.

Brij Je:- I am sure you must have tried BARYTA CARB 200 , CONUM 30/1000 for enlarged prostrate.
If it is an early stage then even Aconite and Belladona can work. more
