New data out of the journal of the American College of Cardiology shows a lifetime diet full of omega-3 fatty acids can prevent hardening of the arteries. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish including salmon, tuna and sardines. Researchers noted daily intake is key and the more fish in the diet on a regular basis, the stronger the heart benefits.

Scientists say, if Americans ate more oily fish, the rate of coronary heart disease in the U.S. would drop significantly.
