Dr. Thorburns Tip – Eat Fish for Heart Health – Chiropractor Burbank Ca
Greetings to you,
A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine offers good evidence that eating several servings of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids each week may reduce the risk of heart disease and early death. The study was conducted by researchers from Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in Boston, and it compared 94 men who died suddenly from heart disease with 184 healthy men.
They discovered that men without heart disease were 81 percent less likely to experience sudden death if they had high levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood, regardless of other risk factors such as age or smoking habits.
Found in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel and trout, omega-3 fatty acids are believed to lower the risk of developing an irregular heart rhythm and to reduce blood cholesterol and clotting. More and more studies are finding there is an association between less fish intake and heart disease in women and men.
Yours in health,
Dr. Charlene Thorburn, R.N., D.C.
