The growth-promoting effect of dietary polyunsaturated fat is reported for six transplantable rat and mouse mammary adenocarcinomas which have different origins and character istics. All six adenocarcinomas developed a significantly greater mass when implanted in animals receiving a 15% corn oil-containing diet than in animals receiving a fat-free diet. In the case of the two tumors implanted in BALB/c mice, addition of as little as 0.1% pure c/s.c/s-linoleic acid to a fat-free diet was as… CONTINUE READING
