Know the 3 Types of Omega-3s. Omega-3 fatty acids come in more than one form. The types found in fish, called DHA and EPA, seem to have the strongest health benefits.

Stay Lean, Live Longer

EF2087

Researchers found slimmest people had lowest chances of dying in two studies. Keeping trim throughout your life could help you live longer, while being obese might do the opposite, two new studies show.

People who maintain the leanest body shape have the lowest risk of dying prematurely. Weight management should start early and last throughout life. By the time you reach middle age, it’s difficult to lose weight. Obesity should be prevented by managing weight in childhood and adolescence.

Preventing obesity may also prevent its consequences, which include diabetes and heart disease. For the study, U.S.data was collected on more than 80,000 women who took part in the Nurses’ Health Study and more than 36,000 men who were enrolled in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study.
