New study shows food rich in omega-3 EPA & ALA can reduce risk of death after heart attack

A new observational study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and supported by the California Walnut Commission, found that regular consumption of foods rich in omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), found in marine foods like fatty fish, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), found in plant foods like walnuts, was associated with improved outcomes in individuals who suffered a heart attack, including decreased risk of death.
