One to two servings of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids per week could add a few years to your life, according to a new study by Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Washington, which studied the blood fat levels of 2,700 healthy adults aged 65 years or older for 16 years.
"Omega-3 fatty acids are very unique in that, at very small levels in the diet, they have pretty powerful effects on a range of body functions," said Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, lead author of the study.
