The British Heart foundation say that eating oily fish can form part of the Mediterranean-style diet (more bread, fruit, vegetables, fish and less meat, and replacing butter with unsaturated fat spreads).
Research into this style of eating has shown a reduced risk of developing problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and raised cholesterol, which are all risk factors for heart disease.
Researchers have also found that people who closely follow a traditional Mediterranean style diet are more likely to live a longer life and also are less likely to become obese.
