Something fishy in Denmark

But it’s a good fishy! In a study from Denmark, women who didn’t eat fish had triple the risk for heart disease compared to women who ate fish every week. Pregnant women can benefit from 3 or more servings a week of fish and can actually cut their risk for preterm birth. Even young women who also eat fish – high in omega-3 fatty acids – can cut their risk for heart disease while older women can cut their risk of heart failure by eating dark-meat fish. In the study follow-up to the Women’s Health Initiative, those who ate 5 or more weekly servings of broiled or baked fish had a 30% lower risk for heart failure compared with women who ate less than 1 serving a month. It all comes up really nice until you fry them rascals. Fried fish was linked to increased heart failure risk.

Fun and good for you too!
