The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon and other fatty fish may protect against breast and other cancers and relieve autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and asthma. Eating a diet rich in fatty fish like salmon can also decrease your risk of heart disease, according to several epidemiological studies. Omega-3 fatty acids in fish reduce blood clotting and triglyceride levels and normalize heart rhythms. According to a recent review published in Pharmacological Research, consuming 200 mg daily of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), one of the omega-3 fatty acids in fish, cuts heart attack risk in half. Your head, as well as your heart, needs omega-3 fatty acids. They keep your brain working properly; for example, people who have dementia and Alzheimer's have decreased levels of DHA in their brains.
