Doubt any danger: One paper found that men diagnosed with prostate cancer are more likely to have more of the fish-style fatty acids on board. Hardly proves risk from taking them, an idea that makes no sense biologically -- more likely, health-focused guys take the stuff / eat more fish ; also get diagnosed earlier. Ignore this "pop" stuff ; choose supplements with your physician / a trustworthy holist's guidance.
