Fish Prevents Fat
Now there is more evidence that the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish can reduce heart disease. In particular, eating fish seems to reduce the fat deposits on artery walls. A recent study conducted with 223 heart disease patients is revealing. One group received a fish oil concentrate and the other took a placebo. After two years, researchers compared their findings of the two groups. Not only did those taking fish oil have fewer heart related problems, their heart imaging showed twice as much improvement as the placebo group. Fish with the greatest supplies of omega-3 include salmon, mackerel, herring and trout. If you are a vegetarian, a small amount of flaxseed can be substituted.
