Since fish meat is extremely low in calorie, high protein and contains those precious poly-unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, eating fish is extremely good for the overall health of your body. But that is not all. Several recent studies have revealed that eating fish can prevent some of the most serious illnesses in humans.

Preventing Heart Disease

The research conducted in Denmark and published in “Hypertension: Journal of the American Heart Association,” tested 49,000 women and discovered that women who ate little to no fish had 50% more heart problems than those who ate fish at least once on a weekly basis.

They also found that the first group had nearly 300% higher disease risk than those who ate fish regularly.

Eating fish high in omega-3s can seriously decrease blood fat levels, which can contribute to a lower heart-disease risk. We heart fish, indeed.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Fish can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, claims the new study presented at the Radiological Society of North America. Apparently, eating fish regularly can help preserve gray-matter neurons which are responsible for our memory and cognition.

The researchers found that people who eat any kind of fish actually had larger brain cells in the brain areas responsible for memory and learning.

Well, there you have it – Fish is literally brain food.
