Men and women over 65 who regularly consume fish or seafood from other foods rich in omega 3 are likely to live, on average, 2.2 years longer than those who do not include these foods in your diet.

The consumption of products with this type of fatty acid can also help reduce heart disease, according to a study at Harvard University. The survey showed that regular consumption of foods with omega 3 can reduce the percentage of overall mortality by 27%. In the case of deaths from heart disease, this drop may reach 35%.

According to Professor Dariush Mozaffarian were considered statistics of the last 16 years. The researchers analyzed blood samples and made specific studies to examine the risk of death from coronary heart disease (CHD) and arrhythmia. A summary of the study can be read on the website of Harvard University.

The researchers looked at 2,700 Americans over 65 years in the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS). The volunteers, all considered healthy at baseline, are of various states. The findings are present in studies by researchers from the universities of Harvard and Washington.

See the abstract of the study in Annals of Internal Medicine.
