Beat Prostate Cancer by Getting Your Omega-3s
April 04, 2006
Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent prostate cancer from spreading.
Omega-6 fats, the kind found in most vegetable oils, increased the spread of tumor cells into bone marrow. However, the spread was blocked by omega-3 fats, suggesting that a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids could potentially inhibit the disease in men with early stage prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer, which is the third most common cancer in men, is more treatable if it is diagnosed before it has a chance to spread.
