At The Fisherman's Wife we believe eating fish is a smart choice. Researchers worldwide have discovered that eating fish regularly, one or two servings a week, may reduce the risk of a variety of diseases. Healthy eating is important and fish is low in fat, high in protein and an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids.
Selected research findings indicate the following:
Brain and eyes - fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids can contribute to the health of brain tissue and the retina (the light sensitive tissue lining the inner surface of the eye).
Cardiovascular disease - eating fish every week reduces the risk of heart disease 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 or seafood 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 breast milk.
Inflammatory conditions - regular fish consumption may relieve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and autoimmune disease.
