Murff says the findings could be another reason to eat fish with omega-3s, such as salmon and tuna:
"There’s already some good data that suggests that omega-3 fatty acids that come from fish help reduce somebody’s risk of having heart disease. And I think this study would suggest that you might also have a reduction in your risk of developing certain cancers." (13 seconds)

Also called: Colon polyps
A polyp is an extra piece of tissue that grows inside your body. Colonic polyps grow in the large intestine, or colon. Most polyps are not dangerous. However, some polyps may turn into cancer or already be cancer.
To be safe, doctors remove polyps and test them. Polyps can be removed when a doctor examines the inside of the large intestine during a colonoscopy.
Anyone can get polyps, but certain people are more likely than others. You may have a greater chance of getting polyps if you
- Are over age 50
- Have had polyps before
- Have a family member with polyps
- Have a family history of colon cancer
