Certain genes boost fish oils' protection against breast cancer
...) - Researchers who found that fish oils appear to reduce
breast cancer risk have now discovered that the oils may especially benefit women with particular genetic makeups. The protective effects of fish oils, called marine n-3 or omega-3 fatty acids, are linked to the cancer-fighting properties of the oil'...
