Fish oil linked to increased risk of colon cancer in mice MSU News Michigan State University
I just found this article published today on the Michigan State University's website and find it to be of much concern, as I was of the belief, as many people are, that taking fish oil supplements is a healthy practice to help lower triglycerides and reduce risks of heart attack and stroke. However, this research suggests that excessive fish oil supplementation may increase the risk of colon cancer. The article does, however, state that a recommendation should be developed regarding guidelines for how much fish oil is too much to take and that only those who are low in omega-3 fatty acids should be considering this type of supplementation at all; very interesting. I imagine these new findings will spark further research in this regard. Unfortunately, we will have to wait and see.
In concern for your health,
