Lung Cancer: Nutritional Intervention Comes To The Rescue

High doses of omega-3 fatty acids can reverse potentially fatal cancers, according to a new case study published in the current issue of the journal Nutrition and Cancer//. A researcher at the University of Nevada has shown that omega-3 fatty acids, which are often found in fish oil or golden algae oil, can save the life of a terminal cancer patient.

According to the study, Ron Pardini, a professor of biochemistry and associate director of the Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of Nevada, successfully treated his 78-year-old neighbour ‘D.H.’, who was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.

The cancerous tumors found in D.H.'s lungs have shrunk to 10 % of what they were in 2000, according to last year's computed tomography (CT) scans. Pardini's previous research showed that omega-3 fatty acids significantly depressed the growth of human mammary, ovarian, colon, prostate and pancreatic cancer cells that were injected into athymic mice-also known as nude mice. So, he drastically increased D.H.'s intake of omega-3 fatty acids.

According to Pardini, D.H. was told by his doctor in 2000 that he had only a few months to live. But five years later, he is still alive, and has even gained a little weight.

While beginning to take high dose of fish oil and golden algae oil capsules daily, D.H. also reduced corn-based foods from his diet. Corn contains omega-6 fatty acids that are found to increase cancer growth.

While the case study merely describes a single incident, it could help lead to human clinical trials. This study raises new hope that nutritional intervention, instead of chemotherapy or surgical excision, can come to the rescue of those diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
