Eating oily fish ‘may boost bowel cancer survival’

A study from Harvard Medical School of over 1600 bowel cancer patients has shown those that increased their intake of oily fish after diagnosis were less likely to die from the disease. Patients who increased the amount of oily fish by at least 0.15g a day demonstrated the greatest benefit and were 70% less likely to have died from colon cancer. This data is promising but still needs to be replicated in a larger populations. NHS choices, 22/07/2016
