Eating Fish May Help Ward Off Colon Polyps in Women

Eating at least three servings of fish a week may reduce women’s risk of developing some types of colon polyps, according to a new study.

Colon polyps are small growths on the intestinal lining that may develop into cancer. Previous research has suggested a link between inflammation and formation of colon polyps.

Omega-3 fats in fish may reduce inflammation and help protect against the development of colon polyps, according to the researchers at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville, Tenn..

Their study of more than 5,300 people found that women who ate at least three servings of fish a week were 33 percent less likely to develop colon polyps, and also had lower levels of an inflammation-related hormone called prostaglandin E2.

The researchers were surprised to find that eating fish reduced the risk of colon polyps in women, but not in men.

Types of fish with high levels of the protective omega-3 fatty acids include tuna, salmon and sardines.

The study was published online in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
