Study Finds Evidence Of Anti-Cancer Potential Of Omega-3s

April 10, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who analyzed data from 1,125 colorectal cancer cases found that high intake of marine omega-3 fatty acids was associated with a lower risk of a certain kind of tumor known as a microsatellite instable tumor. Omega-3s were not linked, however, to a lower risk of another kind of colorectal tumor known as a microsatellite stable tumor, nor were they associated with colorectal cancer overall. Nevertheless, the authors said the findings suggest that omega-3s have “potential anticancer activity” and might someday be used to prevent colorectal cancer.
