A study just published by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology shows that Japanese men are much less likely to have clogged arteries than American men (or even Japanese men living in the United States) even though all of the groups studied had similar cholesterol levels and rates of smoking.
What was the difference? The men in Japan ate fish every day while the men in the United States ate fish one or two times per week. Fish contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered to be the key nutrients in fish that keeps your heart and arteries healthy.
