Good Diet Cuts Cancer Risk

Saturday 24th July 2010

Eating a diet that is low in omega-6 fatty acids could reduce the risk of developing cancer, according to new research. A new study suggests that cutting vegetable oil, corn oil, corn-fed red meat and other foods that are rich in omega-6 oils could prevent as many as one in every three cancer deaths.

Experts studying canine cancer found that dogs were less likely to develop the life-threatening condition after switching to a diet that was low in the fatty oils. Scientist explain that the findings show that eating a diet that is rich in omega-6 oils can cause inflammation that encourages cancer growth.

Researchers now recommend that at-risk patients consider changing their diets in order to safeguard their health. Scientists have also advised that pet food manufacturers should improve the oil content of dog foods in order to reduce cancer risk in canines.
