DISCOVERY: DHA May Slow Development of Tumors in Mouse Model

It’s known that the omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is crucial to brain function, vision and the regulation of inflammatory phenomena. It is also linked to reduced incidence of cancer. A team of researchers from University of Louvain (UCLouvain), have discovered the biochemical mechanism showing that other related fattyRead …
