Omega-3 Fats Curb the Growth, Spread of Liver Cancer

The first study compared the effect of omega-3 and omega-6 fats on human hepatocellular carcinoma cells, the most common cause of all liver cancers (up to 90 percent) and usually fatal within six months, for up to two days. No surprise, omega-6 fats had no effect on cancer cells, but the omega-3s -- in the form of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) -- induced apoptosis (programmed cellular death).

In the latter study, omega-3 fats were just as effective in treating cholangiocarcinoma tumor cells, an aggressive and fatal type of liver cancer that forms in bile ducts.
