Rogers, HW, et al., “Incidence Estimate of Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer in the United States, 2006,” Archives of Dermatology Vol. 146 (No. 3), March 2010, pages 283-287 reports: • “The total number of procedures for skin cancer in the Medicare fee-for-service population increased by 76.9% from 1,158,298 in 1992 to 2,048517 in 2006. • “Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is the most common malignancy in the United States. • “…[T]he incidence of skin cancer in the United States has substantially increased from 1992 through 2006 and is now almost double the last published estimate from 1994.”

: Glycemic (blood sugar) control WORSENS during fish oil administration: “The glycemic [blood sugar] control of [all of] the four insulin dependent diabetic patients worsened during the fish oil administration. • “…[T]he insulin dose of the subjects had to be increased throughout the six-month period of fish oil administration to maintain constant blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin concentrations (HbA1c— average blood sugar level). “Despite the stable bodyweight by patients on the basal diet, glycosylated hemoglobin [A1c] levels after six months of fish oil administration increased 16% from 4.9% to 5.7%. [Note: This is an awful effect for a diabetic.] • “Another important finding of our investigation was that consumption of a fish oil-enriched diet worsens glycemic tolerance.”

“Fish-oil supplementation reduces stimulation of plasma glucose fluxes during exercise in untrained males,” “It is concluded that fish oil reduced Rd [rate of glucose disappearance] glucose by 26% by reducing glucose metabolic clearance rate …” [Note: This is an awful effect for a diabetic.] • “[I]t was observed in healthy human subjects that a 3-week supplementation of the diet with fish oil (6g/ day) decreased by 40% the insulin response [a horrific effect] to an oral glucose challenge without altering either endogenous glucose production or plasma utilisation. • “[N]-3 long-chain fatty acids are incorporated into membranes whose composition remains altered at least 18 weeks after interruption of fish-oil supplementation….”
