Omega-3 Fatty Acids Cut Colorectal Cancer Risk in Men, Study Finds

A recent study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention suggests omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of getting colorectal cancer by two-thirds in men.
The primary basis for these studies comes from other research, which suggests that omega-3 fatty acids prevent omega-6 arachidonic acids from promoting cancer in the body.
Fatty acids make compounds called prostaglandins, which either become omega-3s that suppress the inflammation of cancer or omega-6s which promote them.
178 men with colorectal cancer and 282 cancer-free controls were observed in the study which found that the lowest risk of colorectal cancer was evident in the men with the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood.
Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of death among Americans and represents roughly one-tenth of all new cancer cases in the U.S.
Blood levels of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids were associated with decreased risk of colorectal cancer among men not using aspirin,” the researchers wrote.

Frank Mangano’s commentary:
Omega-3 fatty acids are in my top 10 supplement recommendations. They have shown to be beneficial in protecting the heart, improving cognitive function, as well as preventing depression, strokes and cancers.

Some great sources of omega-3 fatty acids are flaxseed, hemp seed, chia seed and especially oily fish.

Carlson’s liquid fish and cod liver oil by Carlson Laboratories is the brand I personally use to supplement my diet with the optimal amount of omega-3 fatty acids. I recommend it to anyone looking for a high-quality fish oil supplement.
