Has anyone discussed with your doctor use of the ratio of stearic acid to oleic acid (determined by a red blood cell fatty acid profile) as a potential marker for prostate cancer and/or or prostate cancer progression?   I have read some study materials suggesting a potential relationship, but I have never heard of this ratio being used in a clinical setting.
