It provides further validation to the concept that Omega-3 intake decreases risk of heart disease. A population study of 4,900 women in Denmark marked who ate fish high in omega-3 at least 3 times a week, against those who ate little or no fish whatsoever.

Study Highlights:
  • Women who seldom or never eat fish may be increasing their risk of cardiovascular disease by 50 percent or more, according to the first population-based study among younger women.
  • Those who ate fish most often, especially fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids, had 90 percent lower risk than those who ate little or no fish.
  • The link with cardiovascular disease was evident, even among women in their 30s.
