Young women who regularly eat oily fish are less prone to heart disease say scientists.
A groundbreaking study has found that a fish-rich diet could cut the risk of heart attack and stroke by 90 per cent.
Traditionally findings have highlighted the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, found in salmon, mackerel and sardines for men. However
it is now believed because of gender differences fish oil might be even
more beneficial for women of a child-bearing age, boosting blood
pressure, cardiac and blood vessel function.
researcher Dr Marin Strom, from the Statens Serum Institut in
Copenhagen said: 'Our study shows that for younger women, eating fish is
very important for overall health.'
