Melanoma growth is reduced in fat-1 transgenic mice: Impact of omega-6/omega-3 essential fatty acids
While this is a mouse study, it is not the first to look at the influence of healtier fats on melanoma growth. We have become fearful of the sun based on “experts” recommendations and fear of increased melanoma in children. Common sense seems to have eluded this topic. Does anyone really think kids today are spending more time in the sun? Heck, I don’t even think sunscreen was invented when I was a kid and we sure as heck didn’t sit inside and play video games all day.
So there have to be other factors at play, and poor quality fatty acid intake is most likely a major player. In addition, the fearmongering of the sun has created a near epidemic of Vit D deficiency which is wreaking havoc on our risk of other chronic diseases.
