Based on the results of animal experiments, it seems proven that conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) mixed with the feed hinders the formation of gastric and skin cancer in mice as well as the development of intestinal and breast cancer in rats. Although it has been observed in experiments done in vitro for several human tissues that CLA significantly decreases the proliferation of cancerous cells, it is unknown how its effect is changed at in vivo conditions.
