Fish Health benefits

Health Benefits of Eating Fish

Regular consumption (one to three times per week) of fish can reduce the risk of various diseases and disorders.

Selected research findings include:

  • Asthma – children who eat fish may be less likely to develop asthma.
  • Brain and eyes – fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids can contribute to the health of brain tissue and the retina (the back of the eye).
  • Cardiovascular disease – eating at least two serves of fish per week reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke by reducing blood clots and inflammation, improving blood vessel elasticity, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fats and boosting ‘good’ cholesterol.
  • Dementia – elderly people who eat fish at least once a week may have a lower risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Diabetes – fish may help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels.
  • Eyesight – breastfed babies of mothers who eat fish have better eyesight, perhaps due to the omega-3 fatty acids transmitted in breastmilk. Eating fish two or more times a week is associated with reduced risk of age-related macular degeneration.
  • Inflammatory conditions – regular fish consumption may relieve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and autoimmune disease.
  • Prematurity – eating fish during pregnancy may help reduce the risk of delivering a premature baby.

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post
    or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
