Fish Really Is Brain Food, And The More The Healthier

July 21, 2009: 10:46 AM EST
An “observational” study of nearly 15,000 elderly people (i.e., 65 and older) in Asia, South Asia and several South American and Caribbean countries found that those who ate a daily diet of oily fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids were a lot less likely to develop dementia than those who ate fish less frequently. The risk was reduced by 20 percent, scientists found. But woe to those who ate no fish at all. They were 20 percent more likely than irregular fish eaters to develop dementia. The researchers said their findings, gathered through door-to-door interviews, would be bolstered scientifically by controlled clinical trials.
