Study: Fish oil could help prevent breast cancer

July 8, 2010

The study conducted at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center involved a survey of more than 35,000 women with no history of breast cancer. They were asked what supplements they took. Researchers say those who had fish oil on a regular basis were 32-percent less likely to develop the disease. Researchers say more studies are needed to prove a definitive link and until then they recommend women talk to their doctors before taking any supplements.
