Omega-3 Fats Prevent Breast Cancer

Researchers evaluated over 250 patients with breast cancer and analyzed their fat relative to 90 women without breast cancer.

The analysis showed that there was indeed a protect effect of omega-3 fatty acids on breast cancer risk and supports the imperative balance of the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio as being important in the development of breast cancer.

Previous studies have shown the importance of vitamin D in the development of breast cancer.
