, May 07, 2015 ) Calgary, AB -- Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the US. Nearly 132,700 new cases of colorectal cancer occur annually. Just over half — nearly 69,100 — occur in men, while just over 63,600 occur in women. One research study, published in Gut a leading international journal in gastroenterology, found that consumption of omega 3 fatty acids aided in colon cancer prevention
by reducing the size and number of rectal polyps—a risk factor for colon cancer. Most cases of colon cancer begin as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called adenomatous polyps. Over time some of these polyps become colon cancers.
Research author and Sangmi Kim, Ph.D. a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute of Environapamental Health Sciences, Research Triangle Park, N.C. stated, " Experimental data have shown benefits of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in colorectal carcinogenesis, ranging from reduced tumor growth, suppression of angiogenesis and inhibition of metastasis. Our finding of inverse association between dietary intakes of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and distal large bowel cancer in white participants adds additional support to the hypothesis."
The researchers studied the link between omega fatty acid intake and distal large bowel cancer using data from a population-based control study. They recruited 1,872 (929 cancer cases and 943 controls) using the State Cancer Registry and Division of Motor Vehicles records.
Using a validated food frequency questionnaire, nineteen omega fatty acids were assessed. The researchers used the questionnaire to collect information on the frequency and amount of foods typically consumed in the past 12 months. Patients who consumed more long-chain omega-3 fatty acids had a reduced risk of distal large bowel cancer
. Compared to the lowest quartile, fat intake in the highest quartile was linked with a 39 percent reduced risk of cancer. The research concluded that an increase in dietary intake of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, maybe beneficial in the prevention of distal large bowel cancer.
