Omega 3 Fatty Acids May Prevent Breast Cancer

29 July 2010 No Comment

omegaBreast cancer is a disease that takes by storm hundreds of thousands of females throughout the earth every year.  It’s not like you can avoid getting sunburned to prevent skin cancer or don’t smoke to avoid lung cancer….breast cancer seems to strike those regardless of certain lifestyle habits.  However, there is one thing in particular that could help tip the scales towards prevention;  taking omega 3 fatty acid supplements.

Foodconsumer.org reported that a “new study reported in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention suggests that taking fish oil supplements, which are high in omega 3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA may help prevent breast cancer.

The study of 35,016 postmenopausal women led by Emily White at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington showed that women who took fish oil supplements regularly were 32 percent less likely to develop breast cancer, particularly invasive ductal breast cancer, the most common type of the disease.”

If you’re a lady, you must do everything within your power to tip the scales in your favor!
