Eating fish at least once a week may cut in half the risk of sudden cardiac death.

This finding has been reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association after a study of the eating habits of over 20,000 male physicians.

And .....the study showed you don't have to eat fish every day....one serving a week seems to be enough.

Furthermore, dietary fish intake was also associated with a significant reduction in the overall risk of death.

This study should give us one more good idea for the New Year.
