The researchers studied the association between the risk of colorectal cancer and consumption of fish, as the major source of omega-3 fatty acids and claimed the reduction in risk of colorectal cancer was due to exposure to omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. According to researchers, the study was premised on the unclear association between intake of fish and long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and colorectal cancer.



Eating fish has numerous health benefits as it is full of nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D. According to Department of health, US, omega-3 fatty acids in fish may help prevent and treat depression. It may also aid other mental conditions, such as bipolar disorder. Furthermore, it helps lowering blood pressure and reduces risk of heart attacks, abnormal heart rhythms and strokes.
