The analysis of fish preferences in the aspect of arteriosclerosis prevention
The aim of this study was to analyse fish preferences depending on their nutrients in the aspect of arteriosclerosis. The research was carried out on 1135 people (695 women and 440 men) aged 20-65. The preferences of 16 fish were evaluated according to a five-degree scale. Four subgroups were selected taking into consideration high and low content of: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and/or docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and vitamin A and/or vitamin E. It was confirmed that the fish with high EPA and/or DHA or vitamin A and/or vitamin E content were preferred. The fish preferences depended stronger on vitamins content rather than content of fatty acids from n-3 family. The received results despite their pro-health features of preference show the need of educational actions disseminating the role of fish in the aspect of arteriosclerosis prevention.
