Slow growth of prostate cancer cells by fish oil supplemented diet

Posted April 30, 2012

Fish oil is an oil derived from the tissues of oily fish. Fish oils contain the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), precursors of eicosanoids that are known to reduce inflammation throughout the body and are thought to have many health benefits. Fish do not actually produce omega-3 fatty acids, but instead accumulate them by consuming either microalgae or prey fish that have accumulated omega-3 fatty acids from microalgae. A study revealed that fish oil is beneficial in slowing down the growth rate of prostate cancer.
