More fish = less prostate cancer

Speaking of eating better, this is news to me. Most people know that omega-3 fat is good for you (typically from fatty fish or flaxseed). But I never knew that the omega-6 fats can increase cancer growth. Better make sure I'm balancing out all those almonds with some tuna and flaxseed.
"Omega-6 fats, found in vegetable oils, nuts and seeds, increased the spread of tumor cells into bone marrow. This invasion was blocked by omega 3 fats -- the ones found in oily fish"
