Newsflash: JAMA 2006 ADMITS…

Omega-3 is NOT a Cancer Preventive

Omega-3 fatty acids have been claimed to lower the risk of contracting cancer. The Journal of the American Medical Association (Vol. 295, No. 4, January 25, 2006) reports what we have been saying for years:

“A large body of literature spanning numerous cohorts from many countries and with different demographic characteristics does not provide evidence to suggest a significant association between omega-3 fatty acids and cancer incidence. Dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids are unlikely to prevent cancer.” (emphasis added)

Life-Systems Engineering Science Analysis: For years we have been misled about the supposed anticancer effects of omega-fatty acids; in particular, fish oil and flax oil. This reports explained the significant dangers of overdosing on them.

To reach the truth, all anyone had to do was to review the 38 medical journal articles from 1966 to 2005 like this study’s authors did; then discount the majority of the studies because they were statistically incorrect or improperly done. It is tragic that America and the rest of the world follows recommendations based on the results of improperly performed studies. Medical journals don’t independently verify them. Don’t expect the popular press to report the truth anytime soon.
