Abstract

Background. The present study examined the relation between fish consumption and mortality from all causes, ischemic heart disease, and stroke. Methods. The fish consumption data in 1961-1963, 1979-1981, and 1989- 1991 and mortality data, age-standardized to 45-74 years, mean of the latest available 3 years, mostly around 1992-1993, in 36 countries, were obtained from the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization, respectively. Results. There exists an inverse univariate correlation between log fish consumption in 1961-1963, 19791981, and 1989-1991 and log all-cause (P <0.01 to <0.001) and ischemic heart disease (P <0.05 to
