For now a laboratory work, which confirms several other previous research.
And the "practical" implications?
For an adult - the researchers explain - it is recommended to consume at least 250 mg of DHA per day. But studies show that our diets only provide 50 to 100 mg per day on average. This is well below the minimum recommended intake.
The team will not stop, aiming at DHA as the key to alternative cancer treatment options, more effective and perhaps less invasive.
The work was published in Cell Metabolism.
