Fish cuts heart attack risk

A 30-year study appearing in The New England Journal of Medicine found that men who ate eight ounces or more of fish each week had a 44 percent lower risk of dying of a heart attack than men who ate none. The study did not consider whether the subjects ate lean or fatty fish. The researchers analyzed data from the Chicago Western Electric Study, which followed 2,107 men who worked at the Western Electric Co. The average participant was overweight, ate far too much fat and cholesterol, drank a lot, smoked and got little exercise. That sounds like a lot of people I know.
