A low-fat diet supplemented with an Omega-3 rich fish oil supplement may be associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer recurrence. The data emerges from one studio published in 'Cancer Prevention Research', which confirms the anti-inflammatory power of Omega-3s.
The researchers, starting from a previous work conducted in 2011 on a group of men with prostate cancer, found a protective effect against tumor recurrence among patients who increased their consumption of Omega-3. The benefit was measured in comparison to a western style of eating with too much fat.
Dietary omega-3 supplementation has been associated with low levels of pro-inflammatory (carcinogenetic) substances in the blood and reduced cell progression (a method of predicting tumor aggravation).
