There is a significant amount of scientific evidence that suggests that omega-3 fatty acids may play a
role in reducing the risk of heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in most Western countries.
Researchers have found that omega-3 fatty acids can make blood less likely to clot and block blood vessels,
and that consuming omega-3s may also decrease levels of some blood fats and possibly cholesterol. Possible
relationships between omega-3 fatty acids and other disorders such as cancer, arthritis, and asthma are also
currently being studied.
Omega-3 fatty acids are found almost exclusively in aquatic organisms, although smaller amounts can be
found in some plants and plant oils. Seafood is considered the best dietary source of omega-3 fatty acids.
All fish and shellfish contain some omega-3s but the amount can vary. Generally, fattier fish contain more
omega-3 fatty acids than leaner fish, but the amount can vary from one type of fish or shellfish to another.
