Omega-3 Fatty Acids Reduce Breast Cancer Risk!

Updated on March 11, 2012

Take Fish Oil and Help Prevent Breast Cancer!

A recent study that followed 35,000+ post-menopausal women finds that there is a positive correlation between fish-oil supplementation and the prevention of breast cancer.

Fish oil is high in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are omega-3 fatty acids, that we don't get enough of in our diets! That's why it's important to supplement.

After six years, the study found that women who regularly supplemented with fish oil had a 32% less chance of contracting the most common form of breast cancer.

The Study's Results... Take That Fish Oil!

The study was recently published in the American Association for Cancer Research's journal Cancer, Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. 

Emily White, PhD, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, who lead the research said, "It may be that the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil supplements is higher than most people would typically get from their diet," She also adds that further research will be necessary. 

Make sure your fish oil has large concentrations of EPA and DHA!

Fish oil is important for everyone to take... Its health benefits for both men and women are overwhelming. Just do your research...

I take fish oil every day, but I make sure that the fish oil that I take is high in EPA and DHA, and so should you!
