Omega-3 deficiency was recently revealed as the sixth biggest killer of Americans

A recent report adds to the growing evidence that omega-3 supplements may play a role in preventing chronic disease.

Researchers asked more than 35,000 postmenopausal women who did not have a history of breast cancer to complete a 24-page questionnaire about their use of supplements.

Regular use of fish oil supplements, which contain high levels of the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA, was linked with a 32 percent reduced risk of breast cancer.

Eurekalert reports:

“The reduction in risk appeared to be restricted to invasive ductal breast cancer, the most common type of the disease. The use of other specialty supplements, many of which are commonly taken by women to treat symptoms of menopause, was not associated with breast cancer risk.”

Additionally, I’d like to point out some other stats as report on “omega-3 deficiency was recently revealed as theĀ sixth biggest killer of Americans, responsible for up to 96,000 premature deaths each year…”

Now if you’ve ever been in my practice you know that I recommend a very specific formulation of fish oil for adults that is twice the EPA as DHA. I have offered and recommended this since 2001.
