The reports that fish oil may boost a man’s risk of prostrate cancer have been all over the news. In fact, marine sources of omega-3 fatty acids may also raise the risk for aggressive prostate cancer, according to the study by scientists at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. This isn’t new information – there have been previous studies showing the dangers of marine sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge hypnosis clients use self hypnosis to increase their desires for vegetables, whole grains and fruit. Learn hypnosis and eat plant based food for your health.
Too Much Fish Oil Might Boost
Prostate Cancer Risk
HealthDay, July 10, 2013: “These anti-inflammatory omega-3s were associated with a 43 percent increased risk for prostate cancer overall, and a 71 percent increased risk in aggressive prostate cancer,” said study lead author Theodore Brasky, a research assistant professor at Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center in Columbus, who was at Hutchinson at the time of the study.
Aggressive prostate cancer is often fatal, he added.
Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish such as salmon, trout and fresh tuna and in fish oil capsules, are widely reputed to have health benefits because of their anti-inflammatory properties.
But this new research, published online July 11 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, confirms damaging evidence reported in two prior studies.

The American Institute for Cancer Research recommends that we base all of our meals on plant foods. Research shows that vegetables and fruits probably protect against a range of cancers, including mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, stomach, lung, pancreas and prostate. There are many reasons why vegetables and fruits may protect against cancer. As well as containing vitamins and minerals, which help keep the body healthy and strengthen our immune system, they are also good sources of substances like phytochemicals. These are biologically active compounds, which can help to protect cells in the body from damage that can lead to cancer.
Foods containing fiber are also linked to a reduced risk of cancer. These foods include whole-grain bread and pasta, oats and vegetables and fruits. Fiber is thought to have many benefits, including helping to speed up ‘gut transit time’ – how long it takes food to move through the digestive system.
Plant foods can also help us to maintain a healthy weight because many of them are lower in energy density (calories). (AICR)
If you still think that you can’t live without your beef, pork, chicken or fish, then learn hypnosis and discover how easy it is for you to change your thinking and your desires. With self hypnosis you can easily have healthy cravings for plant based food.
