Editors: Eetu P. Heikkinen
Book Description:
Eating fish offers major health advantages. The primary benefit found from including fish oils in the diet is the diminished risk for sudden cardiac death. What this means is that fish eaters decrease the chance of dying suddenly from a heart attack (there are different kinds of heart attacks). Two mechanisms explain how this may work. First, it seems that the fish oil fatty acids reduce blood clotting by decreasing the stickiness of blood platelets. Second, omega-3 oils may play a role in stabilizing heart rhythms. It could be that the electrical impulses that go awry during some heart attacks are preserved in fish eaters. These protective qualities may work together, resulting in a lessened risk of sudden cardiac death that's been found among fish consumers. Other possible health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are their potential to help lower blood pressure and protect against some forms of stroke. This new book presents the latest research in the field from around the globe.
