Nutrition a powerful weapon against leukemia

Growing evidence indicates that N-3 fats may be a powerful weapon against leukemia. For example, it is known that both EPA and DHA components suppress leukemia cell growth and induce these cells to commit suicide (apoptosis).

It one animal model of myeloid leukemia, which normally kills 100 percent of mice, it was found that DHA added to their diet significantly prolonged life. Subsequent studies confirmed this and showed the mechanism, which involved gene activation and activation of apoptosis mechanisms. In addition, DHA increased the effectiveness of the anti-leukemia drug AraC.

Another study found that both GLA and EPA suppressed the growth of leukemia cels and killed leukemic cells. Combining the two oils increased the effectiveness. What this means is that a combination of EPA, DHA, and GLA provides us with a powerful weapon against leukemia. Other studies have shown that quercetin, especially when combined with resveratrol and ellagic acid, powerfully suppress leukemia.
