Preventing Heart Disease
Many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices.
To reduce the risk of heart disease, the AHA recommends eating two servings of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids each week. Most of us eat fish only three times per month or less. Not to mention the concerns about unsafe levels of contaminants such as mercury and lead that are now commonly found in many fish.
Most American diets provide more than ten times as much omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, even though there is general scientific agreement that individuals should consume more omega-3 and less omega-6 fatty acids to promote good health.
Research shows that high levels of omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health and help retain normal blood pressure and triglyceride levels.*
