Omega-3 took a hit as a panacea of cancer prevention this summer. In the July 11 issue of the online Journal of the National Cancer Institute, a study by scientists at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle showed the fatty acid accelerated prostate cancer.

Yet only a few weeks earlier, a study in the British Medical Journal reinforced the omega-3 benefit for women in preventing breast cancer. This study focused on consuming fish as the source of the fatty acid versus the supplements. It found that for each 0.1 gram or 0.1 percent energy increment of fish oils taken daily, the risk dropped by five percent.
