Omega 3’s lower breast cancer risk in post-menopausal women

Posted on: 16th November 2016

How can I help myself?

Post-menopausal women can lower their risk of breast cancer by taking omega 3 fatty acid supplements.

Conclusion

Their anti-inflammatory properties are as powerful as drugs, new research has found. The supplement is especially effective in post-menopausal women who have thicker breast tissue or are overweight or obese. Researchers from the Penn State Milton S Hershey Medical Centre tested the supplement against the anti-oestrogen drug, Raloxifune, on a group of 266 post-menopausal women with no signs of breast cancer.
