Though known for being good for the heart, a new study conducted at the Rhode Island Hospital indicates that fish oil may also be very good for the mind.
The results of the study, published in the Alzheimer’s & Dementia journal, found that people taking daily fish oil supplements showed significantly lower rates of cognitive decline than those not taking a daily fish oil supplement.
The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have updated and released new seafood consumption guidelines for pregnant women, nursing women, and young children. After years of recommending a "maximum" amount of fish to eat weekly, the new recommendation proposes a "minimum" consumption level of two to three servings per week.
"For years, many women have limited or avoided eating fish during pregnancy or feeding fish to their young children, " said Stephen Ostroff, the FDA's acting chief scientist. "The information that's been developed over the past decade strongly demonstrates that the health benefits that accrue from the consumption of fish far outweigh any risk."
