Fat and Skin Cancer

Posted Apr 12 2009 11:51pm

Speaking of fat, here's a study that looks at dietary fat and incidence of skin cancer.  After adjusting for sun exposure and other things, researchers found that a higher fat intake actually reduced the risk of skin cancer.

Another study looks at the role of omega-3 fats in preventing skin cancer, mostly through lowering inflammation.  One other obvious connection is that dietary fat leads to more Vitamin D consumption, which could protect against skin cancer.
