Eat the Right Fish for Heart Health

April 23, 2018

From the Everyday Health website

From snapper to sole, tilapia to tilefish, there’s a wide variety of fish to choose from at your grocer’s fish counter. The American Heart Association (AHA) says that eating at least two 3.5-ounce servings of fish per week, such as salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines, and albacore tuna, can help beat heart disease and heart attack. But there’s a catch: Research shows that so-called “heart-healthy” fish like these may not be so healthy for you after all.

For your heart and health in general, “the advice should not be just eat fish, but to eat the right kinds of fish,” Dr. Carpenter says.

To make sure you’re buying the best kinds of fish for your health, get up to speed about methylmercury and PCBs.
