Tuna and Fish lowered stroke risk by 27 percent

I think these days most people have the idea firmly planted in their heads that eating fish and tuna (and chicken, of course) versus red meat is healthier. However, the health differences that account from eating these foods can be substantial.

A doctor Mozaffarian analyzed the medical records of over 4700 individuals over 65, obtained information on their eating habits, and then reviewed ther records once more twelve years later.

This is what he found:

1. 13 percent of the group had suffered strokes.

2. Those who ate tuna and non-fried fish 1-4 times per week had a 27% lower risk of stroke.
