Good News For Your Prostate: You Can Have Your Omega-3 Fatty Acid And Eat it Too

Anyone creating a videogame football roster from scratch knows how it goes: You make him strong, he's going to be slow; you give him speed he's going to be easily tackled; you give him arm strength, he's going to get busted mid-season for a strip club altercation.

It's like that in the real world, too. Healthwise, doctors suggest omega-3 fatty acids aid in lowering cardiovascular disease. That's good. But studies have shown they could be factors in bringing about prostate cancer — and that's bad.

So the good news — and anyone who's ever worried about coronary disease and had a colonoscopy knows this is good news —  is that a U.C. San Francisco/San Francisco VA Hospital study claims that omega-3 fatty acids will not give you prostate cancer (especially if you're a woman).
