Sometimes I wonder about studies like these.
Moderation. Anything to excess is not good. It's been known for years that too much vitamin A is not good for you as are some other fat soluble vitamins. Also unless you burn alot of vitamins they will sit in your system/fat cells in many cases. The couch potatoe will not burn as much as a gym rat.
The omega threes are fat soluble supplements. Some recommend taking them 3 times a day. Most won't need or can't handle 3 a day. Especially if taking other fat solubles. I also wonder about the gelatin coatings as well. Ever feel how hard that coating gets on older vitamins-it gets hard as a rock.
Also alot of vitamins need to be taken in combination with or without others for proper absorbtion. Some vitamins are best if taken with a meal.
I'd like to know were those in this study sedentary, athletes or had a physical job. How were the omega 3s administered; by gelatin coated pill or liquid. What other foods and vitamins were the participants taking. What was their existing cancer risks/history.
I started taking omega 3s for cholestorel and my joints became less stiff. It's one of those things if I don't take it for awhile I notice it.
Need to see more studies and more information on this one before I abandonship on supplements like omega 3s.
