No RED meat!

Thinking of grilling a rib eye? Instead, try grilling a salmon steak. Research shows that getting the omega-3s found in a 6-ounce serving of fatty fish like salmon could reduce the risk of heart failure by as much as 33 percent!
Hearts naturally lose some blood-pumping ability as a normal part of aging. But with heart failure, the decrease is made more severe -- usually due to another health condition. Yet there’s plenty you can do to keep your body healthy and avoid a weak heart. In a large study, men who ate fatty fish such as salmon or herring once a week had the lowest rates of heart failure. Regular exercise and a generally healthy diet are also good choices for your heart I hope my brother reads this one!
