Omega-3 Fights Breast Cancer

A new study that was recently published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, shows clear evidence that continuing exposure to omega-3 fatty acids lowers the risk for breast cancer. Researchers believe that omega-3 to be the driving force in the prevention of breast cancer.

The most common form of cancer in women is breast cancer and is considered the second leading cause of cancer death among females.  It has been a belief by advocates for breast cancer that diet may be of great help in cancer prevention. However, studies conducted to prove such claim lack clear evidence and human studies have been inconsistent, according to David Ma, professor and co-author of the study.

Researchers have therefore used modern genetic tools by creating a novel transgenic mouse that produces omega-3 fatty acids and develops aggressive breast tumors. This was then compared to mice that were genetically engineered to develop the same tumors only.

Findings show that the rodent model producing omega-3 developed only two-thirds as many tumors and were likewise smaller by 30% versus the other model, and the difference lies solely in the presence of omega-3.

Ma, who is also a well-known expert in how fats influence health and disease, hopes that there will be more research on the benefits of healthy living and using diet to lower risk of cancer based on this recent study. According to Ma, an area of growing importance is prevention and they are working on shaping a better world, which includes better lifestyle and diet.
