Title:

Influence of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acid Sources on UV-Carcinogenesis and Immunoresponsiveness

Key words:

omega-3, omega-6, corn oil, beef tallow, menhaden fish oil, UV radiation

Research Institution:

Baylor College of Medicine

Location:

Texas

Researcher:

Homer S Black

Project Description:

Dr. Black fed animals diets with fats from corn oil, beef tallow, or menhaden fish oil in different amounts, to determine which diets result in the fewest tumors that might be induced by UV-radiation or tumor transplants. Differences in saturation in the dietary fats might enhance the immune response and increase a person�s natural ability to fight cancer.
