Omega 3’s beats Colorectal Cancer

“eating a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids (especially salmon, mackerel, herring, anchovies, sardines, and tuna) cut the risk of developing colorectal cancer by nearly 40 percent”

If a drug company developed a drug that reduced colorectal cancer recurrence by 40% they would be shouting about it. Yet the study linked and excerpted below talks about reducing either/or colorectal cancer or a relapse of colorectal cancer by 40% and you can hear crickets…

 Please don’t misunderstand me. I am not talking about curing colorectal cancer. I am talking about evidence-based nutrition, supplementation and other lifestyle therapies shown to greatly help cancer patients reach and remain in remission.
I am both a cancer survivor and cancer coach myself.  I have remained in complete remission from my “incurable” cancer since early ’99 by living an evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-cancer lifestyle through nutrition, supplementation and other lifestyle therapies.
I take Life Extension Super Omega 3 daily. For several reasons. Firstly, this brand has been evaluated and approved by Consumerlab.com, an independent testing company. Secondly, research tells me that omega 3 fatty acids are both anti-cancer and heart and brain healthy. Previous chemotherapy left me with both brain and heart damage so omega 3 fatty acids are a wonder drug.
Have you been diagnosed with colorectal cancer? If so, what stage? If you would like to learn more about both conventional (FDA approved) and evidence-based non-conventional colorectal cancer therapies please scroll down the page, post a question or comment, and I will reply to you ASAP.
Thank you,

“Certain dietary supplements appear to affect the development of colorectal cancer or its recurrence, two new studies suggest…

In one study, researchers from the U.S. National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences found that eating a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids cut the risk of developing colorectal cancer by nearly 40 percent. In the other study, from cancer researchers in Italy, consumption of a dietary supplement containing selenium was found to reduce the chances of having polyps recur by a similar amount

“Our finding clearly supports the evidence from previous experimental and clinical studies showing that long-chain omega-3 fatty acids inhibit tumor growth,” said the study’s lead author, Sangmi Kim…

Kim said the research supports boosting omega-3 intake through diet or perhaps by taking an omega-3 supplement. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish, especially oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, anchovies, sardines , nd tuna. Plant-based sources include flax and flaxseed oil, Brussels sprouts, soybeans and soybean oil, canola oil, spinach, walnuts and kiwi…”
