Eating Fish May Increase Longevity

Regularly eating fish rich in omega-3s (e.g., salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, lake trout) may help you live longer. When researchers studied 2,600 older adults, they found those with the highest blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids from fish had a 27% overall lower risk of death and a 35% lower risk of death from heart disease when compared to those with the lowest levels. However, researchers aren’t certain about the reason for the link, because the fish eaters also tended to eat more fruits and vegetables. Bottom line: If you’re not a fish eater, try adding some into your diet along with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
