How to have healthy heart?

For a healthy heart eat at least a couple of meals of fish each week. The omega-3 fats in fatty fish such as salmon and tuna reduce blood pressure, triglycerides and fatty build-up in the arteries and the risk of irregular heart beat, clots and sudden death.
Omega-3 fatty acid makes blood platelet less sticky, helps protects the lining of arteries and thus reduces the risk of heart attack.
Omega-6 fatty acid also lowers the risk of heart disease. The good sources of omega-6 are vegetable oils such as safflower, soyabean, sunflower and corn oil.
