Omega-3 & Colon Cancer

A recent study by Wageningen University in the Netherlands researched omega-3 and its relationship to protecting against colorectal cancer.*

The study showed that consuming more fish per week may cut the risk of colon cancer.  It also implied that fish oil may help protect the heart against cardiovascular disease and could reduce the risk of certain other cancers.

Wageningen University researchers suggest increasing your weekly intake of fish by 100g can help reduce the risk of developing colon cancer.
