Fish Oil Capsules offer protection against invasive breast cancer

July 12, 2010

    Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle obtained supplementation information (not including vitamin and mineral use) from 35,016 postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 to 76. The women were free of breast cancer and they were followed for the next six years. After six years there were 880 cases of breast cancer. 
     Black Cohosh, Soy, Dong Quai and other supplements used for menopause had no effect on breast cancer prevention or risk. Regular consumption of Fish Oil Supplements decreased the risk of invasive ductal breast cancer by 32 %; this is the most common form of breast cancer. The study is published in the July 19th, 2010 issue of the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention.
