This is the first study of this type to show a direct correlation of reduction in CVD and CVD deaths over a 10- and 20-year period from consuming more seafood high in omega 3 fatty acids. This study links the consumption of seafood twice a week to a 27% decreased risk of developing CVD and a 74% decreased risk of dying from cvd over a 10 year period. This study also links an even greater reduction of 76% in deaths from CVD over 10 years in those that consume greater than one serving of small fatty fish high in omega 3 fatty acids. These fish are sardines, anchovies, herring and mackerel.
This is an amazing study that should impress upon governments, teachers, doctors etc. the importance of increasing awareness and dietary education to the populations they serve.
Dr Michael Lange of Fortifeye Vitamins and The Lange Eye Institute says that there is enough proof that increasing omega 3 intake is a simple step everyone can take to reduce the chances of CVD and death from CVD. Dr Lange is a public health advocate through his syndicated talk show called “ask the dr” that can be heard weekly coast to coast and live video streaming all over the world since 1993. Dr Lange is the creator of Fortfeye Super Omega and Fortifeye Super Omega 3 Max and is involved in continuous omega 3 and nutritional research.
