What is the connection between
fish oil, or EPA and DHA, to
According to most experts, a high intake of
fish, fish oil, or supplements containing the
omega-3 oils EPA and DHA , would be
expected to reduce the incidence of cancer
and perhaps play a role in treatment. Studies
support this, especially for breast cancer and
colon cancer.
“. . .there is increasing support for an anti-
cancer effect of EPA and DHA. Additionally,
there are data showing that if cancer has
developed, EPA and DHA supplementation
may ease the way by decreasing inflamma-
tion, and . . . decrease physical aspects of
fatigue.” (Jorn Dyerberg, M.D., DMSc. &
Richard Passwater, Ph.D. The Missing
Wellness Factors–EPA and DHA. Basic Health
Publications Inc, 2012)
It only makes sense. Various observations
stimulated scientific curiosity. Scientists
noticed, for example, that Japanese women
who switched from their traditional high-fish
diet to a Westernized diet experienced an
increased incidence of breast cancer. These
clues led to in-depth research that provided
numerous biochemical explanations as to
why EPA and DHA would exert anti-cancer
action. These various mechanisms are
explained nicely in the book by Dyerberg &
Passwater, referenced above.
So every indication, until recently, led to
the conclusion that a high omega-3 oil intake
would, if anything, have a beneficial effect
on cancer risk. It was quite a surprise, there-
fore, when the recent headlines proclaimed
"Too Much Fish Oil Might Boost Prostate
Cancer Risk."
What about prostate cancer? Is there any
reason to expect the relationship between
EPA and DHA to prostate cancer would be
different from other cancers? Apparently not.
In fact, there have been studies dealing
with omega-3 oils and prostate cancer.
Studies on humans suggest that decreasing
the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids,
i.e. increasing the amount of omega-3's,
decreases the risk of prostate cancer from
developing and progressing. This was investi-
gated in men undergoing radical prostatecto-
my who were randomly assigned to receive
a low-fat diet with 500 mg of fish oil daily
(higher omega-3 ratio) or a controlled
Western diet (higher omega-3 ratio) for four
to six weeks prior to surgery. After the sur-
gery, men in the low-fat fish-oil group
were found to have fewer tumors (both
less benign and cancerous tissue) and slow-
er cancer cell growth than men consuming
the West- ernized diet (Aronson, WJ et al.
Cancer Prev Res 2011 Dec;4(12):2062-
Dr. Michael Murray, in his excellent
newsletter,, presents a
comprehensive list of studies dealing with
fish oil and prostate cancer:
“What do other Studies Show?
“In addition to population-based studies,
several studies have been conducted that
were actually designed to determine the
effects of fish and fish oil consumption in
prostate cancer. In a detailed meta-analysis
conducted in 2010, while fish consumption
did not affect prostate cancer incidence, it
was associated with a 63% reduced mortality
due to prostate cancer.
“A meta-analysis examines all previously
conducted studies. Here are some of the
results from some of these studies:
?Researchers investigated the effect of
dietary fatty fish intake among 6,272 Swedish
men who were followed for 30 years. Results
showed that men who ate no fish had a two-
to three-fold increase in the risk of develop-
ing prostate cancer compared with those
who consumed large amounts of fish in their
?Data from the Physician's Health Study, a
study spanning 22 years, found that fish con-
sumption (=5 times per week) reduced the
risk of dying from prostate cancer by 36%..
?A study conducted by the Harvard School
of Public Health that involved 47,882 men
over twelve years found that eating fish more
than three times a week reduced the risk of
prostate cancer but had an even greater
impact on the risk of metastatic prostate can-
cer. For each additional 500 mg of marine fat
consumed, the risk of metastatic disease
decreased by 24%.
?In one of the best-designed studies,
researchers in New Zealand examined the
relationship between prostate cancer risk and
EPA+ DHA in red blood cells (a more reflec-
tive marker for long-term omega-3 fatty acid
intake). Higher levels of EPA+DHA were
associated with a 40% reduced risk of
prostate cancer.
?In a study of 47,866 US men aged 40-75
years with no cancer history in 1986 who
were followed for 14 years EPA+DHA intake
at the highest levels was associated with a
26% reduced risk of developing prostate can-

It is not surprising, then, that the recent
headline was greeted with a great deal of
skepticism by those who are experts in the
field. The study itself was published in the
Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
("Plasma Phospholipid Fatty Acids and
Prostate Cancer Risk in the SELECT Trial", by
Theodore M. Brasky, Amy K. Darke, Xiaoling
Song, et al)
They looked at data and specimens collect-
ed from men who participated in an earlier
study, the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer
Prevention Trial (SELECT), a large ran-
domised, placebo-controlled trial in Europe
which aimed to test whether selenium and
vitamin E reduced prostate cancer risk. The
measured blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids
in men with prostate cancer, and a group
selected randomly. What they found was that
the men with the highest blood levels of
omega-3 fatty acids had the highest risk for
prostate cancer.
What does this mean? Numerous experts
have pointed out the various limitations of
this study, and the fact that few valid conclu-
sions can be drawn. Those responses will be
presented shortly. First, let’s look at some key
