medved, FWIW I'm keeping my diet where it is with salmon over red meat, and will continue to take Fish Oil supp's on a daily basis to keep my cholesterol in place.
With each passing day more and more experts are weighing in on this "Overblown Scaremongering" 'report.'
Regarding your question about serum EPA/DHA levels - this is what the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) has to say:
"The difference in the mean blood plasma phospholipid fatty acids level for omega-3s between the groups was small - 4.66% in the combined cancer group versus 4.48% in the control.
They are basing their results on just 0.2% difference in omega-3 levels. Such a small difference in the plasma omega-3 status between the top 'high-status' group and the bottom 'low-status' group was a major concern - especially given that both groups actually fall within the 'normal' range.
These levels are not astronomically high levels. Therefore any country that has a diet based on fish... would have incredibly high levels of aggressive prostate cancer, and we know that's not the case.
It is a tiny and insignificant difference in plasma levels, which they are linking to a 71% increase in prostate cancer. And that's simply a red flag in itself."
So for me, I'm good with the status quo.
