Women Who Eat Fish Rich In Omega-3s Reduce Risk Of Cardiovascular Problems

December 5, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
Childbearing-age women who regularly eat fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids may significantly reduce their risk of developing cardiovascular disease, Danish population research has found. The study included 49,000 women aged 15-49 years who were interviewed or submitted questionnaires about their fish consumption  and other lifestyle issues. The most common fish consumed by women in the study were cod, salmon, herring, and mackerel. Those who rarely or never ate fish had 50 percent more cardiovascular problems over eight years than those who ate fish regularly. Compared to women who ate fish high in omega-3 weekly, the risk was 90 percent higher for those who rarely or never ate fish.
