Fish oil supplement and B vitamins - Does it not prevent cancer?Supplementing with omega 3 is not the panacea for optimum health, just this week has left a study in France with more than 2,500 people who had already had some type of heart disease and were treated with fish oil supplements, vitamins B (B6, B12 and folic acid). Contrary to expectations consume these supplements was reflected in a lower risk of developing cancer and even in some women omega-3 was associated with increased risks.During the study were 4 groups, one took two pills of vitamin B (3 mg of B6, B12 0.02 mg and 0.5 mg folic acid) every day, another took two pills of omega 3 (600 mg per day), the third both supplements, and the fourth group only placebo. And this supplementation was provided to over 2,000 people aged between 45 and 80 years during the 5 years that has lasted the studyThe results were that both groups had used the B vitamin pills had the same risk of developing a tumor than the control group and not the first study to demonstrate its effectiveness against cancer no.Men who took omega 3 had the same risk of cancer than men in the control group. But in women, this risk is tripled. This is that women were five times more likely to die from cancer if they had taken the omega 3 that if they had used only the placebo.It is suspected that taking these supplements could have enhanced the growth and development of some early tumors or precancerous growths that had been missed at baseline. And also is studying the relationship that estrogens may have in mediating these effects.Not the first time that the omega 3 loses in a study have been others on gingivitis, liver disease, migraines, aches, breast pain, eczema and ulcers by allergies which was not effective.It can also cause side effects such as belching or reflux, bad breath, heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, rash and nosebleeds. To reduce these symptoms consume them with food or freeze them and take them as a cold pill. But be careful because more than 3 grams a day could cause the blood from clotting and increase the risk of bleeding and high doses may reduce the ability of the immune system to fight infections so special care must be taken with patients who have systems suppressed immune either naturally (elderly) or medically (organ transplant patients).For some people consume omega 3 can raise LDL levels and diabetes can have problems in controlling blood sugar. In connection with blood pressure with omega-3 supplement may result in unexpected decreases. If you are consuming angelica, clove, sage, garlic, ginger, ginkgo, ginseng, red clover, turmeric, and willow its anticoagulant substances linked to omega 3 can result in bleeding by preventing blood clotting.Fish oil may also reduce levels of vitamin E is still not known exactly if that prevents its absorption or because it spends the reserves of this vitamin faster than expected.Moreover the vitamin C is gaining importance and has been found that high doses of vitamin C make it easier to kill cancer cells of brain tumors by radiation therapy. The acid attacks only cancer cells by damaging their DNA to be much easier to remove after radiation. It is known that a high dose of vitamin C succeeds in killing a wide range of cancer cells in the laboratory and in animal models.Obviously, we need to supplement our diets with reach fish oil supplement and multivitamin capsules, but we have to be careful of over use of them “over dose”.
