Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. It represents 13% of all new cancer cases in the US and >25,000 men will die from it this year. Risk factors for prostate cancer are: age, family history (genetics), and race.
Researchers search to determine if nutrition affects prostate cancer risk. A systematic review of 12 self-reported dietary intake and 9 biomarker studies finds no evidence of an association between prostate cancer risk and omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs).
