PN on Prostate Cancer Study

Did you hear about the "study that showed" fish oil causes prostate cancer?  Precision Nutrition does a nice job of debunking that "study" -

"A new study appears and it’s all over the news. Vitamin X or food Y is correlated to cancer, heart disease, or stroke! Suddenly people start avoiding vitamin X or food Y.
But hold on. What does it mean to say that two things are “correlated”, anyway?"
In brief, "not much", and PN explains why.
