Now this is a weird one:
Transfats are the bad fats which we have tried as far as possible to take out of our diet as they are not good for the heart. Now it seems that the good fats (omega 3) may be good for the heart but bad for the prostate.
Of course even though it is a large study it certainly won't get us rushing to McDonalds....

Hi, An.  Tony (TC-Las Vegas) started a thread on this a couple of days ago.  See below. But, you're right.  I'm still not going to do the McDonald's diet.

So sorry. Didn't read Tony's post. I do try to keep track of what people post but this one slipped through.
