Krill oil, a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), plays a key role in a healthy diet.  According to the American Cancer Society, there is some research that fish oils with these omega 3 fatty acids, such as krill oil, decrease the rate of cancer cell growth but not all studies agree.  The most evidence for the benefits of fish oil, is improving heart health including risk factors such as high triglycerides.  Always check with your healthcare provider about taking supplements during cancer treatment.
