Need another reason other than taste for eating delicious salmon or tuna? Try Omega-3's. Omega-3's are fatty acids found in cold-water fish such as salmon or tuna which help prevent fat from building up in the arteries (including the aorta). Omega 3's reduce a molecule called lipoprotein lipase (according to a Columbia University Medical Center study), which traps 'bad' LDL cholesterol in the wall of arteries like the aorta.
The study suggests that if you eat more cold-water fish or take a supplement (find one that is a good quality to ensure that you receive all the Omega-3 health benefits, and that the smell from a low-quality product is not released from your pores).
When you choose salmon, try wild caught. It does not contain as any murcury-contaminants.
