Friday, July 19

There were some reports in the news recently about fish oil (specifically omega-3 fats) causing prostate cancer. Looks like the media have once again pulled one detail from a study without really reading it to make headlines. Whenever you see articles like this do some research. I am not asking you to go out and become a nutritionist or bio-chemist, but try to figure out exactly what the research shows. Since Robb Wolf is a lot smarter than me I am going to link you to his blog post about this. Looks like this is another example of mistaking correlation with causation among other things. The bigger point is to be careful when reading headlines and articles. Check the sources and find out if there is a counter point. I'm not telling you what to believe if there are differing opinions, but try to look at these things from multiple angles before accepting the hot news story of the day as gospel.
