fish oil shows possible benefit as prevention

Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, reported findings of a study in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, indicating that fish oil supplements, containing high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, appear to reduce the risk of breast cancer by 32 percent. The findings indicate that further research of fish oil supplements needs to be done to investigate the use of this supplement as a reliable breast cancer prevention. Also, the findings apply only to invasive ductal carcinoma.
