raw fish and vegetables on cutting board

Fatty Acids

In this large, long-term study, doctors followed 421,309 men and women for 16 years. Compared to those who consumed the least, men and women who consumed the most fish and long-chain omega-3 fatty acids were less likely to have died from any cause, nor from heart and circulatory diseases in particular. Men were also less likely to have died from cancer, lower respiratory disease, and chronic liver disease, and women were less likely to have died from Alzheimer’s disease. Doctors pointed out they did not find these health benefits for fried fish, but for cooked and fresh fish.
