Fish Consumption Is Healthier For The Heart, Reduces Risk Of Diabetes

November 11, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
Researchers in Spain who analyzed the diets of 935 men and women at risk of cardiovascular disease found that red meat consumption was associated with greater weight gain and a higher obesity rate, while fish consumption was linked to lower glucose concentrations and less risk of diabetes. Intake of large amounts of red meat was linked to higher cardiovascular risk, higher blood pressure, diabetes and a moderate decrease in life expectancy, mainly due from cancer or heart disease. Eating both white and oily fish, however, not only had health benefits for the heart, consumption of fish, it was associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
