    Basically anything you eat or drink would kill you in the right amounts. Still people get worked up on all the "news" articles that are posted almost every single day.
    One week X food is potentially lethal, the next week it's a miraculous cure for everything.
    If you knew anything you would realize that an increase from 8% to 15% chance isn't really all that small, that it is huge when you are looking at a pool of Billions of people. But the 70% was only for the fast acting, nigh uncurable prostate cancer variety. it said it was more like a 44% increase, for general prostate cancer. that is the difference of 1 in 12 people vs 1 in 8 people which roughly translates to A SHITLOAD OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE!

    It's the Daily Mail. Not sure much else needs to be said.

    Like with most things, you can find a study that says X is good and X is bad. Most vitamins and supplements fall into this category.

    Its 1 study. and for that matter maybe if you have prostate cancer your absorption is decreased dramatically so maybe you can't process omega as well. 1 study means jack all to me. it just says people with prostate cancer had high levels of a certain vitamin.

    Waters side effects on overdose include death, so I think this is a non-issue.

    Is that controlled for age group? Because if a country has a lower life expectancy it's naturally going to have lower cancer rates.

    There are simply too many factors for a minor one like this to be visible at a macro level. Assuming the study is even correct.

    Yup the variables are a bit too much. But I merely intended to post this because OH MY GOD COMMANDER KEEN WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!?

    Study was commissioned by Glaxo-Klein and the "announcement" of the result provides no actual data, the research has not been peer reviewed, and the results make no attempt to differentiate control the groups to determine actual causality as opposed to just identifying a correlation.

    In short, move along. This research is trash.

    SUPER quick (thus, I cannot vouch for accuracy) Google search says 8% of men between the ages of 50 and 70 will develop prostate cancer. An increase by 70% raises this to 13%.

    So the chance is still pretty low.

    But if you want to do everything you can to have as few risk factors for developing cancer as possible, I suppose this is valuable information.

    I'm currently taking it, along with a plethora of other supplements - and yes, I know, the overall benefits are fairly inconsequential to the results for their price - to help boost my weight loss efforts. I don't plan on continuing to take a vast majority of these products once I reach an ideal weight. But hey, I've dropped 35 pounds in the past 2 months purely from diet and supplementation.
    Actually fishoil´s best property is lubricating joints and tendons when you do heavy lifting. Fishoil + a good multivitamin


    OT - I´ll stick with my 6000mg a day.

    There's not much validity to the study. This should be required viewing by every individual -

    More information on how the study in the OP is highly questionable at best, and grossly incompetent/misleading at worst.

    tbh this gives cancer this doesnt blablabla.. screw that, just eat as much non-transformed meat you can, as little salt as possible, as many fruits/vegetables as possible, and vary as much as you can, best way to minimize the problems from food and maximise the benefits of everything... problem fixed!
