Fatty Fish Protects Older Americans’ Hearts Too

There is good news for your oldest members: Researchers from the University of Washington’s Cardiovascular Health Research Unit found that there is no upper age-limit for receiving the heart-healthy benefits of consuming fatty fish, such as tuna, salmon and mackerel. Their study of older Americans found that people who consumed fatty fish just once a week lowered their risk of a fatal heart attack by 44 percent, compared to people who did not consume any fish. However, this benefit is lost when fish is fried, which is, unfortunately, one of the most common preparation methods.

Since the study began in 1988, approximately 4,000 volunteers ages 65 and older have taken part, and 348 of the participants were followed for more than six years to provide information on dietary fish intake. The study, part of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s Cardiovascular Health Study, was presented at the American Heart Association’s 41st Annual Conference.

To ensure that your members receive the full benefits of this heart-protective news, encourage all of them, young and old, to follow the American Heart Association’s newest dietary guidelines, including eating (nonfried) fatty fish at least twice a week.
