Oily fish helps fight breast cancer

PARIS, France: Eating a portion of tuna, salmon, sardines or other oily fish once or twice a week reduces the risk of breast cancer, according to a review published by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) on Thursday.

Researchers based in China looked at 26 previously published studies covering more than 800,000 volunteers in the United States, Europe and Asia whose health was monitored and who gave details about their eating habits.

Oily fish is rich in so-called n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, or n-3 PUFAs, which are involved in the immune system, blood-vessel activity and chemical messaging in the brain.

The group of n-3 PUFAs has four members, known by their initials of EPA, DPA and DHA, which are mainly found in oily fish, and ALA, which is chiefly found in nuts, seeds and leafy vegetables.

The analysis showed that women with a high intake of n-3 PUFAs had a 14-percent reduction in risk of breast cancer compared with those who had a low intake.

But the protective effect came only for fatty acids that come chiefly from fish, and not for ALA acids.

Those who showed the most benefit were women in Asia, whose diet was richer in fish than in Europe and America.......

Quality fish oil exceeds global government standards and guidelines for known contaminants.

Only the purest and highest quality fish oil is odorless with no fishy after taste!
Not only that, the fish oil usually comes certified with well known 3rd party organization like the United States Pharmacopeia Convention (USP), surpassing the tests of the highest of standards worldwide including those established by the European Union, Canada, US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA), and the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

Quality fish oil is usually obtained from the world’s most tightly regulated fisheries that only harvest small ocean fish (not prone to toxicity) such as anchovies and sardines from the most pristine ocean upwelling region found.

Importantly, it is free of genetically modified organisms (GMO) that are known to cause various diseases, and it is allergen free and Kosher-certified.
