Forget the toxins – eat fish for your heart

Date: 1/8/2004

Eating up to four portions of oily fish a week poses little risk of a build-up of toxins in the body and gives a major boost to the heart, say British Government food experts. The advice, issued after an investigation lasting nearly a year, quadruples the amount of oily fish such as mackerel, tuna and salmon that people had previously been advised to eat. The agency said oily fish was well established as a major contributor to fighting heart disease, which killed 117,500 people in Britain alone in 2002.
