Fish Oil Cancer Link Study - Could it Really Help Cancer
Patients?

metabolism.

The research seemed to conclude that fish oil supplements could be used very
effectively at reversing such weight loss, which impacts on the quality of life of the
patient.

It's also worth noting here that this particular fish oil cancer study looked at people
who had cancers of the pancreas, two hundred of them divided into roughly two
equal groups. Sufferers of this condition are more likely to encounter cachexia and
experience gradual weight loss.

So, over a period of 8 weeks they were given the omega 3 fatty acid fish oil, as part
of an overall supplement high in protein, that also contained vitamins C and E. In case
you're wondering what dosage they used, it was equal to 2.2g of omega 3''s

While both of the groups had been experiencing weight loss prior to taking up the
study, by the end of it they had stopped losing weight. Interestingly enough, the
group which had taken the overall supplement which contained the fish oils saw a
gain in weight.

This may seem like a much needed ray of hope but, sadly members of both groups
lived for about the same length of time. Maybe what we can deduce from this is that
the patients quality of life who were on the fish oils was much better.

It's crucial that much more extensive research needs to see if other types of cancers
benefit from such an approach, and what fish oil can do for the rest of our bodily
health.

data that fish oil supplements could
make a difference in some patients.

This study carried out in Britain, spent
time looking at how it played a part in
trying to prevent an aspect of the
disease known as cachexia, a weight
loss condition. This happens in
advanced cases of this horrible
disease, suppressing the patients
appetite, and consequently their
