Omega 3 Fish Oil and unhealthy breast cell development

Omega 3 fish oil reduces unhealthy breast cell development risk in study

A new study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention (July 2010), found that omega-3 fatty acid DHA and EPA from fish oil can reduce the risk of unhealthy breast cell development.

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center asked 35,106 postmenopausal women with no history of unhealthy breast cell development about their use of non-vitamin non-mineral “specialty” supplements. Six years later 880 cases of unhealthy breast cell development were identified. Researchers found that women who regularly took fish oil supplements were 32% less likely to develop unhealthy breast cell development. This reduction in risk “appeared to be restricted to invasive ductal unhealthy breast cell development,” according to a press statement form the center. This is the first study to find a link between fish oil supplements and reduced unhealthy breast cell development risk.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends taking three grams of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids a day, with no more than two grams per day from supplements.
