Moderate Fish Consumption Cuts Risk Of Cardiac Problems In Heart Failure Patients

December 17, 2009: 02:07 PM EST
Consuming moderate amounts of any fish can help reduce the risk of left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) in heart failure patients, according to Greek scientists. The study of nearly a thousand patients hospitalized after heart failure focused on demographic, nutritional, lifestyle, and medical factors combined with the risk of developing LVSD. The researchers observed that eating fish a couple of times a week was associated with significant reduction of the odds of developing LVSD, though eating higher amounts offered no greater protection. The study did not take into account the type of fish consumed or the cooking method used.
