Beat colon cancer death by increasing your omega-3 consumption
A new study published in the journal Gut reveals that colon cancer patients who consume higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, mainly from oily fish, have a better chance of survival.

The study looked at almost 1,700 American adults with colon cancer who benefited from this healthy fat. Read on for the full story...

Study links high omega-3 consumption to better odds of surviving colon cancer

To reach their findings, lead researcher Dr Andrew Chan of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in the United States and his team tracked data on 1,659 people with colon cancer.
 
The team reported that during an average follow-up of about 10 years, 561 of the patients died. In 169 of these cases, colon cancer was the leading cause of death. Other major causes of death included other types of cancer and heart disease.
 
However, the team found that people who consumed at least 0.3 g of omega-3 fatty acids per day after their colon cancer diagnosis were 41% less likely to die of the disease than those who consumed less than 0.1 g of the nutrient per day.
 
They associated this benefit with omega-3 from both food and fish oil supplements, but few of the patients used supplements. Furthermore, the link between marine omega-3 and lower risk of death from colon cancer was more prominent in taller, relatively thin people who didn’t take aspirin regularly.

Dr Jules Garbus, a colorectal surgeon at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola in the United States, reviewed the findings and said he wasn’t surprised.
 
“We’ve long suspected the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation,” he says. “This study begins to show a correlation between healthy living and reducing death from colon cancer.”

Get your fix of omega-3 fatty acids from this grilled salmon recipe

Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 21 minutes
Makes 4 servings
 
Ingredients:
4 ears shucked corn
Olive oil cooking spray
¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
475 g cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp thinly sliced fresh basil, plus whole basil sprigs for garnish (optional)
Four 100 g salmon fillets
 
Preparation:
Prepare grill.
Soak corn in a large bowl of cold water for 20 minutes. Remove and pat dry. Coat corn on all sides with cooking spray, and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Grill about 15 minutes or until charred on all sides. Remove cobs from grill, and cool slightly. Slice the kernels from the cobs, and transfer to a medium bowl. Add tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, and sliced basil; season with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Let the relish sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
Meanwhile, lightly coat both sides of salmon fillets with cooking spray; season with remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Place fillets skin side down, and grill 3–4 minutes or until golden brown. Flip fillets, and grill for 3 more minutes. Fish should feel slightly firm in the center and will register 145° on an instant-read thermometer. Place salmon onto each of 4 plates, and spoon relish over top. Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired.
 
You’ll find it hard to believe that a dish so delicious is also so good for you!
