Abstract Recently, a variety of articles in the popular media have suggested that dietary consumption of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids—from fish or fish oil supplements—may increase the risk of prostate cancer. Many of these commentaries advise against the use of supplemental fish oil. In light of considerable evidence that sufficient tissue levels of long-chain omega-3s can support health in a variety of ways, these concerns need to receive careful critical scrutiny.
