Your favorite fish recipes not only make your meals more flavorful ...
They can greatly reduce your chances of heart disease, stroke, and heart attack.
When I was a kid, my grandfather told me, "Eat lots of fish, it will make you smart."
I don't know if it made me smart or not (there's lots of debate on that subject) but Grandpa is still going strong at 97. He knew that eating fish was healthy and that's what is important.
Add decades to your life and reduce your chances of heart disease and heart attack ...

People have known for centuries that eating fish is healthy, but there was no scientific evidence -- until recently.
The American Heart Association has been advising to make fish a regular part of a heart healthy diet for many years. Two recent Harvard studies support this claim.
The Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine have recently reported that several weekly servings of fish seem to help protect both men and women from heart disease.
Why is this? Fish is a prime source of omega 3 fatty acids. These are also known as essential fatty acids because the human body needs them to function properly.
The human body can't produce these omega 3 fatty acids; we have to get them from foods we eat. Cold-water fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, and herring are the best sources of omega 3, but most fish contain this essential fatty acid.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)are part of the omega 3 family and are readily available in seafood. Although walnuts, soybeans, and canola oil contain omega 3 acids, they do not contain EPA or DHA.
* Note: All fish recipes on this site will provide you with EPA & DHA as well as the essential omega 3 fatty acids.
EPA and DHA are very important for normal brain development (I guess Grandpa was right), nervous system function, and eyesight. These two fatty acids are also thought to reduce the risk of developing arthritis, high blood pressure, some cancers, and heart disease.
