October is both Seafood Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month and you might be surprised how well these two things go together.
Eating fish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids has also been linked to an improved breast cancer prognosis. Fish in this category include salmon, cod, and halibut.
A 2011 study in the Journal of Nutrition showed that the consumption of EPA and DHA fatty acids from fish “inhibit the proliferation of breast cancer cells” and reduces “the progression of breast tumors.” Women who were diagnosed and treated for early stage breast cancer – and given higher levels of EPA and DHA – had an approximate 25% reduced risk of recurrence.
It’s important to note that the benefits corresponded only to the consumption of fish, not fish oil supplements.
Dr. Mitchell Gaynor says that eating fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids is also healthful because it supports proper immune function and lowers a woman’s risk of heart disease and diabetes.
