* Food Can Help Your Heart. Depending how you cook it….

A recent study sought to determine whether fish or the fatty acids they contain are independently associated with risk for incident heart failure among postmenopausal women.  The study looked at the diet of close to 85,000 women.

Their consumption of baked and broiled fish, fried fish, omega-3 fats and trans fats were determined from a questionnaire. The study found that they manner in which the fish was cooked was very important.

According to the study, as reprinted on the website Green Med Info:

“Increased baked/broiled fish intake may lower [heart failure] risk, whereas increased fried fish intake may increase [heart failure] risk in postmenopausal women.”
