Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and women, with risk factors including age (aged 55 and over), diabetes, high cholesterol and overweight. Even if you cannot control your age, the good news is that you have the power to manage some of the other risk factors. Studies show that you can help control dietary risk factors and protect your heart by eating more fish, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Deficiencies in omega-3 increase the risk of heart disease such as heart attack or stroke.
