Two servings a week cut the odds about 70-percent.

Foods regarded as rich in omega three acids include salmon, herring, mackerel, albacore tuna, swordfish, oysters, mussels, rainbow trout and sea bass.
Fish oil supplements are NOT being recommended as part of today's study-- because of their potential side effects.
And lastly-- a cholesterol-lowering drug could delay a form of heart disease in women, at the same rate it slows the disease in men,
Connecticut researchers say the study into the drug Lovastatin is important, because even though heart diseases are among the leading causes of death for American women-- they haven't been included in studies of cholesterol-lowering drugs.
