First-ever unequivocal evidence that long-term ingestion of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of breast cancer

Omega-3 fish oil may inhibit the growth of breast cancer by 30%, according to a new study published by Canada's University of Guelph in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.

Researchers believe the study to be the first ever to offer unequivocal evidence that omega-3 fatty acids, when taken consistently on a life-long basis, may reduce the risk of breast cancer. In women, breast cancer is the most common form of this disease, as well as the second-leading cause of deaths attributable to cancer.

Other studies spanning decades have confirmed that omega-3 fish oil can be therapeutically beneficial in numerous women's health issues, including menopause-related weight gain and other symptoms.

Not all fish oil, however, is created equal. EPA and DHA must be present in optimal quantity and concentration to achieve the best results. It is critical to realize that there are many different forms of fish oil and omega-3-based supplements on the market. When taking omega-3 to reduce breast cancer risk, control over quality is important since fish oils contain high levels of other bioactive lipids which can exert their own, often still poorly understood, potential actions on cancer development.

Currently, the nutritional supplement with the highest quantity and concentration of both EPA and DHA is Megafort's own Quadruple Strength Omegafort SCC. Unlike fish oils, this top-of-the-line product offers 85% omega-3 concentration, four times the concentration of standard fish oil, with more than 1000 mg of EPA/DHA and 1,200 total omega-3s in each capsule.
