Fish Oil May Prevent Breast Cancer

Are you taking your fish oil supplements? Lots of reasons to do so ---- cardiovascular (heart) health being at the top of the list. Check out this article from FYILiving.com ---- research studying the correlation of taking fish oil supplements to the incidence of developing breast cancer. Obviously, more research is needed, but it's one more reason to remember to take your daily dose! In a related topic, about a year ago I went to hear a health talk and one of the subjects was fish oil ---- the doctor who spoke said if you are one of those people who gets a nasty aftertaste from fish oil ---- try keeping your capsules in the freezer. They will melt more slowly when they hit your stomach, thus reducing the taste.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
