For you health conscious eaters out there, listen up. A new study has found the heart healthy fatty acid Omega-3 that's found in salmon and eggs may lead to higher risk for Prostate cancer.

The new study from the National Cancer Institute found a 43% higher risk of developing Prostate cancer in men who eat a lot of fish or take fish-oil supplements.

One man said that he loves fish, and that as long as he eats it in moderation, he isn't worried about the risk.

"From everything I've heard about Omega-3, it seems really good for you, and it just seems like more and more we're hearing about other things that lead to cancer. It seems like we just need to go on with our lives and ignore these things. I mean, I'm sure everything in excess is bad," Corey Zinn told 5 News.

It is recommended that men with a family history of prostate cancer consult their doctor before they decide to eat a diet high in Omega-3.
