Studies Reach Different Conclusions on Health Benefits of Omega Acids

UK - What are you supposed to think, how are you supposed to act, when two reputable groups of scientists publish apparently contradictory research in the same week?</b><br><br> In an analysis published online by the <a href=http://bmj.bmjjournals.com/cgi/rapidpdf/bmj.38798.680185.47v1?hrss=1>British Medical Journal</a>, a study concludes that intake of omega-3 fatty acids from oily fish and fish oil supplements has no effect on cancer, heart disease and mortality. <br><br> At the same time, the British Journal of Cancer reports that scientists from the Paterson Institute at the Christie Hospital in Manchester, England, have found that eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like oily fish, may help to prevent the spread of the cancerous cells that lead to prostate cancer. <br><br> <i>Source: Daily News Central</i>
