Did you know that eating steamed or broiled dark fish help reduce your risk for Heart Failure?

Blog entry posted by The Health Buzz 3 weeks ago

A 10 year study of 84,493 post-menopausal women reveal that those who frequently ate steamed or broiled dark fish such as salmom, mackerel or bluefish had a a 30% lower risk of developing heart failure. On the other hand, those who ate fried fish once a week had a 50% higher risk of incident of heart failure. The study suggests that not only is it important to eat darker fish which are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, but the preparation of the fish was equally important. Frying fish may introduce saturated fats and trans fats that negate the benefits of the Omega- 3 fatty acids found in fish. For good heart health, try to incorporate fish in your diet and eat more of the dark fish as opposed to sole, snapper, cod which are considered white fish.

Ok, let's talk about food. And if we talk about healthy food, then fish is among first products, I hope everyone agrees.If you want to see someone who loves fish, it is me :) . I am so fish-man.
I try to eat fish at least 3-4 times per week and 1-2 times per day. Mostly use salmon, telapia,dorado, carp and hearings( all kinds of). I usually steam fish as it saves all ingredients in good shape. Omega-3, if I am not mistaken, contributes most in fighting many disease, specially cancer. But it is interesting to find that it helps in Heart Failure. I am sure it will surprise us more, the studying about effects f fish to our bodies. Good job.
