Fish Oil - Cancer Treatment May
Be Possible with Omega-3's
June 3, 2010
Is it true that fish oil cancer treatment actually works? A recent
study seems to suggest that high fish oil (or omega-3's fatty acids)
intake can cut the risk of colon cancer by 50%. This new study support
previous findings of the benefits of fish oil in cutting the risk of
various types of cancer, including breast cancer.
Fish oil contains omega 3, 6 and 9's. Omega-3's is the most
important one. Indeed, the typical diet in North America contains much
more omega-6 in relationship to omege-3. Omega-6 in itself does not increase the risk of cancer. But there are
hints that this imbalance may be (in part) responsible for a slight
increase risk in colon cancer. Researchers are not sure why.
Fish oil does more than just provide health benefits to the heart. It
may reduce the risk of colon cancer. We suggest taking omega-3's fatty
acid pills rather than the omega-3-6-9 combination. Take 2 to 4 grams
