Fish Is Indeed “Brain Food” New Research Shows

For  many years fish has had the  reputation of being good for your brain. There is accumulating evidence that this is indeed the case. According to a new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine eating baked or broiled fish once a week is good for the brain.  The research was done at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. “Our study shows that people who ate a diet that included baked or broiled, but not fried, fish have larger brain volumes in regions associated with memory and cognition,” according to researcher  James T.  Becker ph.D.

The increase in our population of elderly people keeps going up and so does the amount of people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. There are studies that indicate that lifestyle factors such as exercise, avoidance of smoking, and a healthy diet could improve brain function and retard the onset or progression of Alzheimer’s.  Eating fish is an easy measure that should be recommended to all.
