Omega-3s inhibit breast cancer tumor growth, study finds
Date:2/21/2013

as many tumours and tumours were also 30-per-cent smaller as compared to the control mice.

"The difference can be solely attributed to the presence of omega-3s in the transgenic mice that's significant," Ma said.

"The fact that a food nutrient can have a significant effect on tumour development and growth is remarkable and has considerable implications in breast cancer prevention."

Known as an expert in how fats influence health and disease, Ma hopes the study leads to more research on using diet to reduce cancer risk and on the benefits of healthy living.

"Prevention is an area of growing importance. We are working to build a better planet, and that includes better lifestyle and diet," he said.

"The long-term consequences of reducing disease incidence can have a tremendous effect on the health-care system."
