    Omega 3 and gene expression in human colon adenocarcinoma cells

    Interesting article at the Nutrition & Metabolism journal:

    This study suggests a novel mechanism by which these fatty acids may mediate
    a wide range of health benefits including limiting cancer progression through
    modulation of the Eph receptor pathways.

    That's awesome. We hear so much about EPA's anti-depression and anti-inflammatory properties, but this is a whole new level. I read parts of it but I'm still unsure if that is the fatty acids themselves or things that we make out of the fatty acids affecting the genes. Either way it's great
    Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.

    Made it to page 10 of the full text then realized there are 39 pages.

    Interestingly, DHA is the dominant fatty Ω3 efa (usually) in nature. Then we convert DHA to EPA as needed. But narrowing down the mechanism of action to one component of epa would increase patentability - ie a drug rather than just 'fish oil'.

    Thanks for posting, SS. It really is very encouraging.
