Eating fish could reduce your chances of getting breast cancer.

Researchers studied the eating habits of nearly 900,000 women. They found that those who ate the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids were 14% less likely to have breast cancer.

This was only true for the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish.

The omega-3's found in plants did not appear to reduce the risk.
