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." For one thing, this Journal is only published on the first and the fifteenth day of the month. And I found no article similar to this one for April or any other edition this year in that journal. 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.

How does this relate to taking Flax seed oil or Chia seeds as a Vegan alternative. Do these have the same prostate cancer causing properties as Fish oil?
You read my mind!
This appears to be very complicated. Here's a study exonerating flax seed oil, although I would never use the oil. I eat the whole, ground seeds.
I also googled "ALA, prostate cancer", and found many good studies. It seems the ALA/cancer link may have come by association with the ALA in grilled red meat. So maybe something in the grilling process caused the cancer, not the ALA. Or, even if a human ate a lot of raw red meat, the cancer risk would go up.
Here it is: http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/content/173/12/1429.full
or an easier to read version: http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/content/173/12/1429.full.pdf
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.
