    Don't take supplements. They are a waste of money.

    I see a bunch of words like expert, scientists, researchers, but I didn't see who conducted or paid for the research or any detailed info on how they came to this conclusion.

    What a shocker. Something the medical community told us was good for us is now bad for us. That never happens.

    I've been taking fish oil for about a year now. I have to say that I don't notice any change in anything (good or bad) since taking it. Maybe I'm wasting my money? I'd like to know more about it though, other than this article which is alarming but contains no real info at all. It wouldn't surprise me though. It all seems like a guessing game in both the alternative and mainstream medical community.

    Please stop reading the Daily Mail as though it is the AMA Journal. It is less reliable than the Nat Enquirer

    Does it run out your other end as soon as you pour it in, like in my Jeep Wagoneer?

    Milk is bad for you. Vitamin E causes cancer. Vitamin C hardens arteries. Fish is bad for you and is toxic. I say just eat what you want because everything turns out to be bad for you haha.

    You Are What You Eat: Low-fat, Fish Oil Diet Slows Growth of Prostate Cancer Cells


    Posted Date: 10/25/2011 12:30 PM

    Faculty: William Aronson, M.D.


    A low-fat diet with fish oil supplements eaten for four to six weeks prior to prostate removal slowed down the growth of prostate cancer cells—the number of rapidly dividing cells—in human prostate cancer tissue compared to a traditional, high-fat Western diet.

    Done by researchers at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, the short-term study also found that the men on the low-fat, fish oil supplement diet were able to change the composition of their cell membranes in both the healthy cells and the cancer cells in the prostate. They had increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and decreased levels of omega-6 fatty acids from corn oil in the cell membranes, which may directly affect the biology of the cells, though further studies are needed, said Dr. William Aronson, the study’s first author and a researcher with UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

    The study also found that blood obtained from patients after the low-fat, fish oil diet program slowed the growth of prostate cancer cells in a test tube as compared to blood from men on the Western diet, which did not slow cancer growth.
    “The finding that the low-fat, fish oil diet reduced the number of rapidly dividing cells in the prostate cancer tissue is important because the rate at which the cells are dividing can be predictive of future cancer progression,†Aronson said. “The lower the rate of proliferation, the lesser the chances that the cancer will spread outside the prostate, where it is much harder to treat.â€
