Long-Term Intake of Fish Oil May Lower Breast Cancer Risk in Women


There are several different classifications of breast cancer. Recent research adds strong support to the use of fish oil in reducing the most common classification, known as invasive ductal carcinoma.

A study conducted by researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, included 35,016 postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 and 76. Participants were members of the VITamins And Lifestyle (VITAL) study group. Subjects completed a 24-page baseline questionnaire that asked about recent (current versus past) supplement use. Frequency and duration of supplementation were also recorded. The women were asked specifically about the use of supplements other than basic vitamins and minerals.

After six years of follow-up, researchers found that regular use of fish oil supplements was associated with a 32 percent reduction in breast cancer risk. The reduced risk was limited to the most common form of breast cancer (the aforementioned invasive ductal carcinoma), which represents nearly 80% of diagnosed breast cancer cases. The highest level of benefit was also determined to be in women who were current users of fish oil.

Fish oil is a rich source of EPA (eicosapentoaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), two omega-3 fatty acids that have been studied extensively for prevention and treatment of various health conditions, including heart disease, arthritis and inflammatory conditions, macular degeneration, and depression. The results from this study give strong support to the possibility that regular fish oil consumption may also be associated with a reduced risk of the most common form of breast cancer.

News Release

USANA Brand Ambassador Monica Puig Recognized As Best Female Athlete Of The 2016 Rio Olympic Games By International Olympic Committee



SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 17, 2016  /PRNewswire/ -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA) congratulates Brand Ambassador Monica Puig on receiving the prestigious Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) Award for Best Female Athlete at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. The award was given for Puig's historic gold medal run earlier this year.

Honoring and celebrating the best athletes and performances from Rio, the ANOC Awards also acknowledged Best Male Athlete, Best Male and Female Teams, and Best National Olympic Committee of Rio 2016, as well as Most Inspirational Performance, Inspiring Hope through Sport, Outstanding Contribution to the Olympic Movement and Outstanding Lifetime Achievement. The ceremony took place at the world-class Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha Tuesday night.

"Monica's performance this summer was one that grabbed the attention of sports fans around the world and is something she should be extremely proud of," said Dan Macuga, USANA's chief communications officer. "We congratulate her on this wonderful achievement and are proud to have her as a valued member of Team USANA."

The award winners were selected by the ANOC jury which comprises representatives from each of the continental associations, the ANOC Athletes' Commission chair, Association of Summer Olympic International Federations President, ANOC secretary general and media representatives.
