Good news for oily fish and vegetable lovers!
Here at Osmio Water we are always on the look out for the latest health research to share with our friends and customers.
At the moment it seems that oily fish and vegetables are the way ahead. A new study conducted by British Researchers has shown that fish oil may protect against skin cancer.
This study was carried out on healthy volunteers in Manchester. The researchers found that eating omega-3 oils found in fish seemed to boost levels of the immune system in the skin, this could potentially counteract the ability of sunlight to weaken the skins own natural defences against cancer. The scientists used a light machine on a group of people taking omega-3 and a group of people that were not and then compared the effects.
Professor Lesley Rhodes from Manchester University said : “It has taken a number of years to get to this stage and the results are very exciting.” The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition are also impressed by the promising results.
Recent research has shown that a vegetarian diet could reduce heart risk by up to a third.
This news is based on a high quality and wide-ranging UK study on nutrition. The research involved almost 45,000 people in England and Scotland.
The subjects were followed up for an average of 11 years. They found that the vegetarians were less likely to suffer from angina or a heart attack.
This study suggests that there are significant heart benefits to a vegetarian diet, which, the researchers argue, are probably due to the fact that eating a vegetarian diet involves eating less cholesterol than a typical meat eater. Also a vegetarian diet may lead to healthier blood pressure.
