    To live longer and younger, aim for three servings of salmon or trout a week. We love these scaly creatures for their DHA omega-3 fatty acid content and the way they protect our heart, eyes, brain, and waistline. Eating fish also reduces the risk of colon cancer (dietary factors contribute to at least 50% of all diagnosed cases). Toss fish on the grill with some vegetables (that's my favorite way to cook my salmon) or enjoy canned salmon (yup, it's the wild kind) with olive oil or canola oil, mayo, and your favorite seasonings for a fab fish sandwich you and your family would swim upriver for.
