10. Fish

Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish can help people to live longer, studies have shown, because their omega-3 fatty acids are helping in fighting dangerous inflammation that can damage your DNA.

The health benefits of dietary omega-3s are blunted when the foods that are high in the omega-6 fatty acids that have most vegetable oils like soy, canola, corn or safflower, and the packaged and restaurant foods that contain these oils.

Instead, rather use oils relatively low in omega-6 fats, like extra-virgin olive oil, macadamia nut oil, and special ‘hi-oleic’ sunflower oil. As for our longer and healthier lives, the study from the University of Hawaii found that people who consumed most baked or boiled fish, as opposed to salted, fried or dried, reduced their risk of disease-related deaths by 23% compared to those who ate the least.
