(Best Syndication News) Researchers at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) say that eating fish can reduce the risk of heart failure, but eating too much may offset the benefits. Fish oil supplements may work just as well as eating real fish, the data show.
It has been known that eating fish can lower triglycerides, a fat in the blood, reduce blood pressure and help keep heart rates (atrial flutter and fibrillation) regular. These conditions are risk factors for congestive heart failure (CHF) which affects around 2 percent of adults, but in those over the age of 65, this rate increases to 6—10 percent. Symptoms include fatigue and weakness, a difficulty walking, rapid or irregular heartbeat, and persistent cough or wheezing.
