Eat oily fish once a week reduces the risk of prostate cancer

Fish oil may protect men from prostate cancer is likely to be aggressive fatal, and the study suggests.

The researchers found that eating large amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids, found in oily fish such as herring, salmon, and mackerel, could reduce the risk of infection by 60 per cent.

It has also reflected the impact of the inherited gene which is known to increase the risk of aggressive prostate cancer.

The study compared 466 meals a man infected with the disease and 478 healthy men.

And found that men who ate "dark" oily fish, rich in omega-3, one to three times a month reduced the risk of 36 percent of prostate cancer than those who never ate dark fish.

Eating more oily fish once a week had a protective effect even larger, leading to a reduction in the 57 percent stake.

A similar trend for various levels of eating oysters has been observed. Oysters also contain omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-3 was also dealt a significant impact on the hazardous variable effect of this gene, COX-2, which promotes inflammation and is known to be associated with prostate cancer.

Men who are suffering from variant has a more than five-fold increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer. But large amounts of oily fish consumption to effectively ruled the risk factor.

From the University of California at San Francisco, he said the head of the research team, Professor John Witte: "The COX-2 increased risk of disease was reflected mainly by increasing the amount of omega-3 fatty acid by half a gram per day."

Omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent prostate cancer by combating inflammation, scientists believe.

There is increasing evidence that inflammation influences the risk of cancer. Inflammation, an immune reaction is decent, can be affected by diet, infections bacterial and viral, genetic make-up.

Results were reported today in the journal Clinical Cancer Research.

It is diagnosed about 35,000 men with prostate cancer each year in the UK and 10,000 die from the disease.
