The study found a class of molecules forms when the body metabolizes omega-3 fatty acids, and could inhibit the growth of cancer. Undertaken with mice, the study researchers found that endocannabinoids molecules are made naturally by the body.  In this case mice with tumors of osteosarcoma (bone cancer that is painful and difficult to treat) “endocannabinoids slowed the growth of tumors and blood vessels” and “inhibited cancer cells from migrating” and hence causing cancer cell death.
