    Guess we need to ban places that sell seafood here, or omega supplements.

    If you try hard enough, you can find a link to cancer with everything.

    Eat more fruits and vegetables and stop eating so much meat and you’ll be fine.

    wow, eating things in moderation NS, that’s a novel idea right ?  Article clearly says “highest levels” and “eating fish too often…”

    Pesticides, genetically modified stuff, etc, dirt bacteria, etc on the fruits/veggies probably can cause cancer too. I guess the point is, no matter what you mandate/ban, people are still going to die. You can’t live forever, and if you did, it would be an absolute nightmare

    what is “too often” and how does the correlate to people who take supplements? I don’t eat fish at all, but I do take supplements because I don’t eat fish.

    This is the problem with the western or American diet. People focus on a single dietary supplement thinking that they’re doing their body good. You’re missing a whole host of other vitamins and minerals though.

    Quit supplementing with vitamins and minerals and start eating a diet that is heavy in a variety of leafy greens and other fruits and vegetables. Stop relying on a pill to keep you healthy.

    No one ever died of eating too many fruits and vegetables. Tons of people die everyday from complications due to over consumption of meat.

    Limit your meat intake and you’ll be fine.

    I don’t know NS, doesn’t the FDA have recommendations ?  For people who eat a balanced diet of fruit, veggies, and meat, I’d say fish 1-2 times per week, but that’s just me.  Everybody is different…I’m sure some people can eat fish more than that.

    If you don’t eat fish, have you tried another seafood ?

    “If you try hard enough, you can find a link to cancer with everything.”

    But most scientific researchers know that, and so they don’t make that mistake. They’re not idiots, and they don’t have an agenda to try to hurt fish oil sales or something.

    The article says eating fish too often may lead to prostate cancer.

     

    Other things, like tobacco use or being exposed to smog in moderate circumstances greatly increase the risk.
