Baked, Broiled Fish Better For Heart Health

Fish contain many beneficial nutrients including omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to improve blood pressure and blood vessel function. But, according to a recent study from Northwestern University, the type of fish you eat and how its cooked determines how it effects your body. Darker fish, such as salmon and mackerel, contain higher levels of heart-healthy nutrients than tuna and whitefish and eating baked or broiled fish reduced the risk of heart failure while fried fish increased that risk. The study, which followed 84,493 women for 10 years, found women who ate the most baked or broiled fish were 30 percent less likely to develop heart failure. On the other hand, women who ate fried fish just once a week increased their risk by 48 percent. More here.
