Fish lovers less risk of heart disease

23rd July 2010

A new study has shown that middle-aged and older men who eat fish every day are less likely than infrequent fish eaters to develop a collection of risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

Whether a fishy diet itself is the reason for the benefit is not clear from the findings but the researchers say the results are in line with studies showing that omega-3 fatty acids - found most abundantly in oily fish like salmon, mackerel and albacore tuna - may have heart benefits.
