110911 - Prostate Cancer Slowed by Diet with Fish Oil

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Men who ate a low-fat diet with fish oil supplements for 4 to 6 weeks before having their prostate removed had slower cancer-cell growth in their prostate tissue than men who ate a traditional, high-fat Western diet, say the authors of a multicenter study.

The researchers also found a change in the composition of cell membranes in both healthy cells and cancer cells in the prostates of men on the low-fat, fish oil supplement diet. The men had heightened levels of omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and decreased levels of omega-6 fatty acids from corn oil, which may directly affect the biology of the cells, though further studies are needed, said first author William Aronson, MD, of UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. In addition, blood obtained from patients after the low-fat, fish oil diet was found
to slow the growth of prostate cancer cells in a test tube, while blood from men on
the Western diet did not slow cancer growth.
Results from the study were published online in Cancer Prevention Research
