A new study again confirms the benefits of an omega-3-rich diet with breast cancer, which not only helps reduce tumor growth but also limits metastasis to other organs.
Not long ago, a study of omega-3-rich diets positively affected breast cancer status in rodents. Scientists found breast cancer cells in individuals who eat a lot of omega-3 fats show signs of slow growth and stop growing.
Omega-3 is a type of fatty acid found in many marine fish, seafood, nuts or fish oil . There are many studies revolving around this substance that have proved its benefits to baby health. people in many ways. There has been a study of more than five hundred thousand people over the past 16 years, proving that eating a lot of sea fish and omega-3-rich foods can prolong life.
Omega-3 can improve blood circulation diseases as well as memory, thinking ability and receptive, prevent depression. Because of these benefits, many scientists have found the ability to fight cancer from this nutrient. In particular, observational studies have found an association between omega-3-rich diets and low breast cancer rates. Currently, a new study in rodents reinforces this observation, reinforcing the evidence for this association. This study was led by Dr. Saraswoti Khadge of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha (USA).
On the other hand, an article in the Journal of Breast and Tumor Gland Biology (Journal of Mammary Gland Biology and Neoplasia) has suggested that fatty acids like Omega-3 can prevent breast cancer cells from growing.
Dr. Khadge observed two rodent groups with two comparable diets, except that a high-olive group contained unsaturated omega-6 fats, while the other group ate a lot of omega-6. 3 in fish oil.
Later, these experiments were injected with breast cancer cells, causing tumors to spread to the mammary gland quickly. These cells can also spread to other places like bones, lungs and liver. After 35 days, the researchers rechecked the experiment and found the difference between the two diets.
In the fish-oil-rich group, breast cancer cells have a slow rate of dispersal, even those that have not yet metastasized to the mammary gland, which have already metastasized. very slow. Specifically, tumors in subjects that eat a lot of omega-3 are smaller than tumors in the omega-6 to 50% group.
After this finding, the team leader concluded that a high-oil diet could help prevent tumor growth.
"Our research highlights the potential therapeutic role of a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids in controlling tumor growth and metastasis" - Saraswoti Khadge.
However, Dr. Khadge warns that this does not mean that the "magic god" omega-3 can stop breast cancer in the first place.
