Eating Fish with Omega-3 May Cut Bowel Cancer Risk

Dear Friend,

More than 49,000 people in the U.S. will die this year from bowel cancer, making it the second leading cancer-related cause of death among people aged 40+. Exciting new findings from a British research team have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids can drastically reduce the chances of dying from bowel cancer by up to 41%.

Importance of Omega-3

Commonly found in certain fish, this fatty acid appears to have a wide variety of health benefits. Omega-3 tends to lower triglycerides, slow memory loss, reduce inflammation, and even improve symptoms of depression as well as ADHD in both children and adults.

Immunotherapy for Cancer and Other Treatments

The amount of research going into cancer treatment is great news for those at risk of developing cancer in their lifetime. Immunotherapy for cancer is experiencing multiple breakthroughs every year, and studies into Omega-3s and other natural remedies are picking up steam.

A cure still seems elusive, but cancer patients have seen enormous quality of life improvements over the past two decades.

Do Omega-3 Supplements Offer Protection in the Long-term?

While your risk of dying from bowel cancer may go down significantly when using Omega-3 supplements, they do not seem to help prevent cancer from forming. As you age, your body loses its ability to properly rid itself of cancerous cells before they turn into a problem.

While this research is promising, there's still a lot of work to be done in analyzing the relationship between Omega-3 fatty acids and cancer.

Nutrition and Cancer Treatment – the Connection

Patients in the advanced stages of cancer may not be able to achieve weight gain but proper nutrition helps in other ways. 1.) Good nutrition helps in reducing the risk of infection. 2.) Side effects from treatments may be reduced. 3.) Patients experiencing weakness may see an improvement. 4.) With reduced side effects through proper nutrition, patients may have an increased comfort level. Lessening the chances of a recurrence of the disease for those in remission or who have been cured is supported by maintaining the right diet.
