Diet rich in fish key to healthy heart

According to recent studies conducted at the University of Pittsburgh, eating a diet rich in fish minimises the risk of heart disease . A seafood-rich diet, such as that served in Japan, could seriously minimise heart attack risk.
The Japanese diet is typically rich in tuna, sardines, salmon and other oily fish. The research team compared Japanese men with white men.
Akira Sekikawa, the Assistant Professor of epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh reportedly commented: “The death rate from coronary heart disease in Japan has always been puzzlingly low. Our study suggests that the very low rates of coronary heart disease among Japanese living in Japan may be due to their lifelong high consumption of fish .”
