Omega-3s Cut Colon Cancer Risk

People who consume omega-3 fats could cut their risk of colon cancer. Researchers examined the relationship between fat intake and bowel cancer risk in more than close to 2,000 people.

Among whites, those in the top quartile of omega-3 consumption had half the risk of colon cancer of the bottom quartile.

Reuters reports that:

“[The researchers] also found that people who consumed more omega-6 fatty acids in relation to omega-3s were more likely to have colon cancer, although omega-6 intake in and of itself didn't affect risk.”
