  • alpha-lipo
  • The third antioxidant tested, alpha-lipoic acid found in spinach and broccoli and proven to have anti-cancer properties had no effect on either of the two adducts studied. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Researchers also discovered that although alpha-lipoic acid had no effect on either adduct, rats who ate the antioxidant had a significantly longer lifespan, compared with rats treated with the other antioxidants. (bio-medicine.org)
  • corn
  • Calendic acid is the fatty acid responsible for the reduction in feed intake and improved feed utilization in mice when calendula oil is added to the feedstuff, as demonstrated by the comparative experiments in the examples using corn oil. (wikipedia.org)
  • consumption
  • Over the last few decades, extreme qualitative nutritional changes have taken place with increased levels of fatty acid consumption [ 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Numerous medical studies, conducted on animals, have shown that the consumption of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids can even slow the growth of cancer xenografts, increase the efficacy of chemotherapy and reduce the side effects of the chemotherapy or cancer. (weightlossforall.com)

  • found
  • Studies have found low levels of omega-3 may cause disorders such as attention-deficit hyperkinetic disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression. (medindia.net)
  • SAN DIEGO Given omega 6 fatty acid's reputation for promoting cancer at least in animal studies researchers are examining the role that antioxidants play in blocking the harmful effects of this culprit, found in many cooking oils. (bio-medicine.org)
  • On the other hand, in the setting of omega 6, the antioxidant green tea polyphenol reduced formation of another commonly found "adduct" from omega-6 fatty acid suggesting it may have beneficial health effects. (bio-medicine.org)
  • This study revealed that DHHedA is a novel type of DNA damage, found in the tissues of rodents and humans, that is caused by omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acid," says the study's lead author, Fung-Lung Chung, PhD, a professor of oncology at Georgetown Lombardi and professor of biochemistry and molecular & cellular biology at Georgetown University Medical Center.

  • Arachidonic acid or AA is found in animal sources such as meat and eggs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Like DHA, arachidonic acid is often found in the brain tissues of cats and seems to have a supporting role in brain function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Though no studies in cats have been completed, it was found that rats with low levels of omega-3 fatty acids resulted in a decrease of glucose uptake in the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • it was found that DHA and AA made up 20% of the fatty acids in the mammalian brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some studies have shown associations between higher intakes and/or blood levels of polyunsaturated fat omega-3s and a decreased risk of certain cancers, including breast and colorectal cancer, while other studies found no associations with cancer risk. (wikipedia.org)
