Including seafood once a week in your diet may reduce the heart attack risk by 50 percent, reveals a study.
Prawns, crabs, squid and octopus are just as packed with vitamins, minerals and fish oils as fish like salmon or cod, the Daily Mail reported.
They all contain Omega-3 - a key fatty acid known to help with heart health.
Although seafood contains cholesterol, it's actually foods high in saturated fats - the type found in cheese, red meat and fast food - that increase levels of bad cholesterol in the body.
So seafood is unlikely to have a major impact on your blood cholesterol levels.
However, the NHS advises against eating raw shellfish and raw seafood during pregnancy.
