I'd like to see how these studies were conducted before I believe it. People have been doing fatty acids and/or vitamins for decades without trouble.
How was the study conducted:
Did they use active or inactive people?
Did the participants have a history of prostate cancer or not?
What was the weight and/or shape of the participants?
What other supplements where they taking?
What was their diet?
What was their enviorment?-hazardous/toxic job or home. Omega 3 fatty acids are a fat soluble vitamin or supplement which excess is stored in fat cells-what else was in those fat cells.
Did everyone get the same dose and/or brand? did the 230 pound inactive male get as much as a 180 pd active/athletic male? Activity since fat solubles are stored in fat cell could be factor of overdosing. I know your average otc gelatin capsule is about 1200 3 times a day. How can the recommended dose be a one size fits all, of course there might be issues.
Did they give the participants gelatin capsules or liquid in a spoon? Gelatin a factor? Ever feel how hard an old gelatin capsule gets ie fatty tumors?
Too many details needed to be validate or take seriously.

The linked article is a tad ambiguous in my opinion. After all how much exactly is high levels of omega-3 fatty acids? Also, there is mention of nutritional supplements being detrimental to health, I dont get that bit either, are the researchers saying that if I eat a whole bunch of omega-3 rich salmon Id be alright but if I had a few health supplements that are high on omega 3 fats my prostate would suddenly develop degenerative diseases? I know medical professionals dont seem to like supplements as a rule, but I disagree with this stance. For example, my uncle had, ironically, an aging prostate issue, and he read up some Super Beta Prostate reviews, liked what he saw, and decided to try it, and guess what? It worked! So I dont know what the researchers are trying to prove and there are gaping holes in the paper, or at least in how it was presented within the article.
