Time to get hooked on fish

Posted:

(ABC)-- Eating fish to stay healthy? We already know its full  of protein and vitamin D.

Now, a new reason to load up your plate. 

Researchers are now pointing to omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, nuts, and seeds. They found that those who ate more of these foods cut their risk of deadly heart attacks by 10%.  Researchers from Tufts and Stanford announced the  results after analyzing 19 studies including 45,000 patients from more than 15 countries.

Omega-3s have already been  shown to contribute to other aspects of heart health as well-- like blood pressure and levels of fat in the blood.

For those of us not so keen on seafood we can also get one type of omega-3s from walnuts, flaxseed oil and canola oil.

But, even better news if you are a seafood fan. With such sources of omega-3s as salmon, trout, anchovies, sardines, and herring.

It might be time to get hooked on fish.
