Preventing Serious Diseases With Omega 3 Fish Oil - How
Fish Oil May Help Prevent Cancer

animals. This is fantastic news for those engaged in the war against cancer.

Omega 3s work in direct opposite of omega 6 fatty acids. This is of benefit because
omega 6 fatty acids can increase cancer growth.

Since omega 3 fatty acids are their counterpart they work in direct opposite. This
means in effect, that what the omega 6 starts, the omega 3 stops. Using this theory
researchers were able to set up a study and test the effectiveness.

They found that the subjects who were given omega 3 fish oils had a dramatic
reduction in their incidence of cancer compared to those without the oil. While it
doesn't cure cancer, it does seem to slow its progression and this can be of great
benefit by itself.

There is a great deal of debate of how omega 3s actually work in the body in this
area. Some of the theories are that the fish oil, once incorporated into the cells
changes and this causes it not to respond to the agents that had promoted its
growth before the oil was involved.

Another reason may be that oil can cause the enzyme that enables prostaglandin
synthesis to be unable to function or function at lower levels. Prostaglandin is what
stimulates tumor growth so if it is not functioning correctly then that slows the
growth of tumors.

Some of the other reasons that omega 3 fish oils may help in the slowing down of
tumors are related to some of the other functions it performs in the body. Due to
the increase in omega 3 fatty acids one's hormones become more in balance and
they are better able to work as they should.

This can be an effective reason why it would be beneficial in cancers that are
hormone related. Also in general omega 3 fish oils promote a good immune system
and having an immune system that is functioning well is the key in fighting any type
of disease.
