The Fish Story
Eating seafood can be good for your brain as well as your body. Are you getting enough?
You already know that eating fish is healthy for your heart, but new research suggests it may also be good for your head. In a study presented at a meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, older adults who ate fish at least once a week—baked or broiled, not fried—had a greater volume of gray matter in the brain in areas important in Alzheimer’s disease. Fish consumption was also associated with sharply lower rates of developing mild cognitive impairment or dementia.
