Fish And Omega-3 Fatty Acids Cut Risk Of Metabolic Syndrome In Men

July 22, 2010: 09:55 AM EST
Korean researchers reported that frequent consumption of fish and omega-3 fatty acids was significantly associated with a lower risk of metabolic syndrome among men, but not among women. The data were compiled from questionnaires completed by 3,504 men and women aged 40-59 years who did not have cardiovascular disease or metabolic syndrome – factors such as excessive abdominal fat that increase the risk for coronary artery disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. During a three-year follow-up period, it was found that significantly fewer men who ate fish daily developed metabolic syndrome compared to those who ate fish less than once a week. The risk of developing metabolic syndrome was cut in half among men who ate the most fish. No similar association was found among women in the study, however.
