February is American Heart Month so it’s a great time to focus on heart health and food choices that can benefit your ticker. Cardiovascular disease (CVD), which affects the heart and blood vessels, is one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

The health benefits of fish are well known, which is why it's prominently featured on the menus of many Sunrise Senior Living communities.

The study determined that oily, dark-fleshed fish can even reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, mental decline in old age and prostate cancer.
