According to health information reported in the media, there is a suggestion consuming oily fish at least once per week could help patients with bowel cancer. It could boost their chance of survival.
Apparently, over 40,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in the UK; statistics shows it is the fourth commonest cancer.
The report outlined the method that should be used to help combat this disease. It suggests that those who consumed food that contains 0.3g of Omega-3 fatty acids on a daily basis have a 40 per cent lower risk of death from bowel cancer. It also alleges that those who had been diagnosed and increase intake by 0.15g each day had an over 60 per cent reduced the chance of dying from the disease.
Personally, did we need a panel of researchers to confirm the benefits of eating fish and certain particular type such a sardines, salmon, and trouts? Maybe not, however, if their research convinces even one person who is a bowel cancer patients to change their diet they would have achieved something.
