Diet that improves brain health


USA: It is a well known fact that fish is a healthy source of omega3 fatty acids. A new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, claimed that adding fish to weekly diet will be beneficial to the brain cells of human beings. Along with omega3 fatty acids and vitamin E, fish contains certain antioxidants that can help avoiding the risk of dementia.

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have carried out a study on this matter and estimated that more than 80 million people will be suffering with dementia by 2040. The study shows that those who ate a diet that included baked or broiled fish had larger brain volumes in regions associated with memory and cognition,

The team has carried out an analysis on 260 people. These people underwent high-resolution brain MRI scans were detected cognitively normal at two time points during their participation in the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS) effort. This effort is said to have begun in 1989 to identify risk factors for heart disease in people over 65.
