Do Omega 3’s that Protect Against Heart Disease Negatively Affect Prostate? [VIDEO]

January 29, 2013

From what we know, eating a diet full of processed foods and not enough fresh, unprocessed foods is unhealthy and can negatively affect our bodies. This study, however, revealed this might not be the case when it comes to prostate cancer risk.

In this HealthDay TV video, we learn about a study about the impact of omega-3’s, nutrients commonly found in fish, on the heart and prostate health. View the video below to reveal the results. Visit Life Line Screening’s YouTube channel to learn more about healthy lifestyles. For those without video capability, the text is provided below.

Omega 3s that Protect Against Heart Disease May Negatively Affect Prostate?

Here is the audio text to the video:

“A type of fat that can protect the heart may not be such a good guy elsewhere in the body. Omega-3 fatty acids have earned a good reputation. Found in fish like salmon, omega-3’s can help prevent heart disease. On the other hand, trans-fatty acids, which are often found in processed foods, have a reputation for being unhealthy for the heart.

In a new study, researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center checked out how these nutrients may affect men’s risk of prostate cancer. Their results were more than a little surprising.

They included about 3,400 middle-aged and older men. Roughly half of the men had prostate cancer and the others didn’t have the disease. The researchers took blood samples to measure their levels of omega-3’s and trans-fatty acids. Men with high levels of the omega-3, known as DHA, actually had a greater risk of aggressive prostate cancer.

On the other hand, as the men’s levels of trans-fatty acids went up, their risk of serious prostate cancer went down. Despite these findings, the lead researchers said that the benefits of eating fish to protect against heart disease outweigh the possible risk of prostate cancer.

I’m Dr. Cindy Haines of HealthDay TV with the news the doctors are reading, health news that matters to you.”
