The article discusses how a diet high in fish may prevent heart disease. A procedure was done by comparing levels of omega-3 fatty acids and atherosclerosis among men born and living in Japan, white Americans and Japanese-American men with ages between of 40 and 49. Japanese men were found to have the lowest level of atherosclorosis and higher levels of omega-3 than white and Japanese Americans. Study author Akira Sekikawa suggests that high levels of omega-3 may help prevent cholesterol buildup in the arteries.
