Old Wives’ Fishy Tale Was Right!

Fish was traditionally known as ‘brain food’ and was said to be good for your grey matter. Recent research suggests that people who eat the most fish are least likely to develop depression, and that eating fish can lower your risk of a stroke. Data from over 675,000 people found that eating five portions of fish a week reduced the risk of a stroke by 12% compared with those who only ate fish once a week. While people who eat fish may have a healthier lifestyle in general, such as exercising more, drinking less alcohol and not smoking, it’s still worth aiming for two to four portions of fish per week as it’s a high-protein, healthy-oil option that tastes delicious.
