Eating fish will reduce risk of heart failure

Eating fish reduces the risk of sudden death in men, latest studies confirm

Eating fish reduces the risk of sudden death in men, latest studies confirm.

During a US study of more than 20,000 men aged 40 to 84 years with 133 sudden deaths from heart failure, the risk was lowest for men who ate fish at least once a week. The report from doctors at hospitals in the US says that there's no evidence that consuming fish can reduce overall heart disease (JAMA, 1998; 279: 234-8).

Merely adding fish to a diet doesn't necessarily protect your heart. Fish should be one factor in a low fat, low cholesterol, high fruit/vegetable diet, according to another study (BMJ, 1998; 316: 160).
