JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - People living in the so-called stroke belt states, that includes Mississippi, eat more fried fish than the rest of the country. Researchers say this may contribute to the high number of stroke deaths.

Stroke belt residents are 30-percent more likely to eat two or more servings of fried fish a week than other Americans. The American Heart Association recommends at least two servings of fish a week but experts say frying removes healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

The stroke belt states are Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana.

This study was led by researchers at Emory University is published in the December 22, 2010 online issue of 'Neurology.'
