A high percentage of omega-3 fatty acids in the blood is linked to an increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer. Conversely, a high percentage of trans-fatty acids is linked with a lower risk.
SEATTLE -- Apr 25, 2011 --
The new study, published today in the Journal of the National Cancer
Institute, suggests that men who have higher levels of omega-3 fatty
acids in their system face a 43 percent increased risk of developing
prostate cancer and a 71 percent increased risk of the high-grade form
of the disease.

Polychlorinated dioxins, furans and polychlorinated benzene
constitute a family of toxic persistent environmental pollutants. In
Europe, environmental concentrations increased slowly throughout this
century until the late 1980s. Dioxins have been shown to be carcinogenic in animals and humans. In humans, excess risks were observed for all cancers,
without any specific cancer predominating.
