We’ve been told fish oil PREVENTS cancer… but is it wrong?

Fish oil fans are not going to like this…
Sometimes, science jumps the gun. It gets things wrong and then has to correct itself.
This can be bad even when it’s something that doesn’t affect human health.
But when it’s something that directly affects health, it can have pretty grave consequences.
I think one of the biggest things that has gone wrong in science in the last 50 years or so – at least when it comes to health – is the idea that fish oil is good for you.
We’ve all heard that fish oil can increase your brain function, can lower heart disease, and can reduce the risk for cancer.
But it turns out that this might not be true.
New evidence is showing that fish oil can actually have long-term negative effects.
And some studies even show that it actually increases the risk of cancer instead of decreasing it.
This is pretty crazy, considering the number of people who take fish oil.
There’s nothing like taking a supplement that everybody says is good for you and then finding out that it might cause one of the scariest diseases.
Fish oil causes cancer.
While this particular study was for breast cancer (and men also get breast cancer), it is informative for other types of cancer as well.
That’s because cancer in the body needs a common set of factors to grow.
If these factors are present anywhere, you’re more likely to get one of many different forms of cancer.
The reason that scientists have thought that fish oil can suppress cancer is because some studies pointed to that idea as being true.
“Animal studies have, in general, been supportive of a protective effect of fish and fish (n-3) PUFA against breast cancer risk; but the epidemiologic evidence of such a relationship is limited.”
And yet, even with these studies, there still seems to be this correlation between taking fish oil, eating a lot of fish, and a higher incidence of cancer.
Fish oil is a fad. Government-funding of scientists has been towards anything that can make fish oil look good.
Unfortunately, fish oil isn’t good.
And many government funded studies, no matter how good they are, don’t always take all of the factors into account.
Epidemiologic evidence – like in this study – is much broader and can show us relationships between things that we wouldn’t otherwise normally see.
“Epidemiology is the study of diseases in populations of humans or other animals – specifically how, when, and where they occur.”
Basically, in epidemiological studies scientists are looking for overall patterns of things.
The more often these patterns occur, the more likely these things are to be linked.
“Epidemiological evidence can only show that this risk factor is associated (correlated) with a higher incidence of disease in the population exposed to that risk factor. The higher the correlation, the more certain the association – but it cannot prove the causation.”
In this study, they looked at how much fish the women ate compared to the rate of them getting breast cancer.
And they found a direct correlation between cancer and fish intake.
“The association between total fish intake and the effect of fat content and preparation method of the fish, in relation to the incidence rate ratios of breast cancer, were investigated among postmenopausal women.”
“…this study showed that higher intakes of fish were significantly associated with higher incidence rates of breast cancer.”
This points to the idea that eating FATTY fish may not be as safe as people think.
Fish is good for you — but not fatty fish. That’s why I stay away from cold water fatty fish like sardines, herring, and salmon.
And I eat cod (which is very lean actually), snapper, grouper, etc.
And taking fish oil may be even worse than eating fatty fish, because you’re concentrating fish fat in a pill.
I don’t recommend taking fish oil ever.
It contains a type of fat called polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA).
And PUFAs have been shown to be exceptionally bad for your health.
So if you’re going to eat fish, stick to the less fatty kind that I mentioned I eat.
Salmon, sardines, and herring are high in PUFAs and we should avoid them.
Not everything science tells us is true… Sometimes it has to correct itself.
And this is definitely one of those cases.
