Omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil have been documented to provide numerous health benefits.

The study reviewed here investigated the association between the use of fish oil and the risk of breast cancer (Brasky TM, et al. 2010).

The participants who were postmenopausal women age 56-76 years completed a questionnaire about their use of supplements. Data about their current and past use were obtained as well as frequencies and duration of use.

The results showed that ten years average use of fish oil was associated with reduced risk of breast cancer.

Considering all the research on fish oil showing anti-inflammatory benefits and cardiovascular benefits, this is certainly one supplement to take.
