A study of young women in their 30’s found that eating fish can help lower their risk of cardiovascular disease. The researchers followed over 48,000 women for eight years.
Fish and fish oil provide n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCn3FAs) which have important anti-inflammatory qualities. In this study, the researchers found that “little or no intake of fish and LCn3FAs was associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.”
