Oily fish 'could help protect against skin cancer'


www.gdaguru.com today reports that regularly taking fish oil supplements could help protect against skin cancer, according to a study that suggests omega-3 fats help boost the immune system. 27-02-2013

Researchers at Manchester University found that volunteers given omega-3 supplements were better able to ward off the potential harmful effects of sunshine, than those given a dummy pill.
 
The academics emphasised their study was by no means conclusive proof of a protective effect, but said it “adds to the evidence that omega-3 is a potential nutrient to protect against skin cancer”.
 
Professor Lesley Rhodes, from the university’s Dermatology Centre, said the findings were important because research showed most people suncreams inadequately and only on holiday.
 
But she said that eating oily fish or taking supplements was not a substitute for suncream, wearing a hat and a shirt, as omega-3 could only be regarded as having a small protective effect.
