Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Breast Cancer

It is a good idea to do your best to strive for breast cancer prevention. If you were doing this already, then it would be known that what you eat is important. Some studies have shown promise that women whose diets are rich in omega-3 fatty acids could be at lower risk for getting breast cancer and dying from it. Omega-3 fatty acids are those "good" fats you may have heard of, present in a food like fish. As yet, omega-3 fatty acids are not considered a proven way to prevent breast cancer. If you are considering eating more foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids or taking a supplement, there may be health benefits, but you should talk to your doctor first.
