This same message and more, is dramatically expressed on the Citizens Commission on Human Rights website and in particular in their video The Marketing of Madness. It's well worth the time to view this site and watch the videos.
I was unable to find the article cited in "the April 25 edition of the American Journal of Epidemiology."

I sure hope that this problem with fish oil doesn't apply to the DHA I take which comes from golden algae oil. Perhaps the problem is with pollutants in the fish oil such as pcb's, mercury, dioxins or pesticides which algae oil is said not to have. Or perhaps it's that the process of processing the fish oil changes it to an ethyl ester compound which, by the way, will dissolve the bottom of a styrofoam cup.
I would double the warning to buy organic apples. According the the Environmental Working Group, non-organic apples are one of the most pesticide-contaminated crops around. If you buy no other organic foods, please be sure to at least buy or do without the twelve foods designated as "the dirty dozen" to avoid 80% of pesticides that you would otherwise consume.

It's not part of the hard circulation. It's in the free article section.
Unfortunately, DHA does seem to be implicated in increased cancer risk.
