Fish Oil May Raise Prostate Cancer Risk

Increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids, which is widely promoted as a way to prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer, may increase the risk of prostate cancer (PCa), especially aggressive disease, according to a study.

The SELECT trial enrolled 35,533 men who were randomly assigned to take vitamin E alone, selenium alone, and vitamin E in combination with selenium. Results showed that men who took vitamin E alone had a significant 17% increased risk of PCa compared with placebo recipients after a total follow-up of seven years.

One potentially harmful effect of omega-3 fatty acids is their conversion into compounds that can cause damage to cells and DNA.
