The American Heart Association has released a new advisory that might have people considering having fish for several of their meals، as the Technical Times said.
On Thursday، May 17، the health organization released an advisory in their journal، Circulation. The bulletin encouraged Americans to increase their fish intake. They strongly recommended that Americans consume fish that contain higher amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids.
The AHA advised eating fresh salmon، albacore tuna، mackerel، herring، sardines، and lake trout. They also suggested that Americans should consume either 3-12 ounces of cooked fish or a three-fourths cup of flaked fish twice a week.
The AHA's advisory pointed out that the fish's Omega-3 fatty acids would significantly strengthen the heart. The research team thoroughly investigated numerous studies and trials that focused on how Omega-3s affected cardiovascular health.
They found that people who ate seafood four or more times a week had a 22 percent chance of getting coronary heart disease than those who ate fish once a month. Also، if people eat fish twice a week، then it would help reduce the risk of heart failure and cardiac arrest.
Another issue that the AHA's advisory tackled was the presence of mercury in fish. The research team found that several types of fish such as swordfish، bigeye tuna، and shark had higher amounts of mercury.
