A new study says omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil, can significantly lower your risk of death.

Researchers determined those with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids had a 27-percent lower risk of death and a 35-percent lower risk of dying from heart disease.

Tuesday night Dr. Papa from the University of Rochester Medical Center joined News10NBC's Don Hudson to talk about fish oil and your health.
