"Two Penn State researchers have made headway toward curing leukemia. Sandeep Prabhu and Robert Paulson have discovered that a compound made from fish oil kills a common form of leukemia in mice."

The cure for leukemia might be found in fish oil

from Gizmodo December 22, 2011

"Lead researcher Sandeep Prabhu explains: 'Research in the past on fatty acids has shown the health benefits of fatty acids on cardiovascular system and brain development, particularly in infants, but we have shown that some metabolites of Omega-3 have the ability to selectively kill the leukemia-causing stem cells in mice. The important thing is that the mice were completely cured of leukemia with no relapse.'"
