A new study, led by Professor Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede from the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, suggests that eating cod, herring, and red snapper may help in preventing Parkinson’s disease.eating cod prevents parkinson's disease

The researchers also highlight that fish is normally a lot more nutritious at the end of summer because of increased metabolic activity.

One of the study researchers Nathalie Scheers says: “Levels of parvalbumin [a protein that prevents the formation of protein structures associated with the tremor disorder] are much higher in fish after they had a lot of sun, so it could be worthwhile increasing consumption during autumn.”

Other conditions linked to protein formation in the brain such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s diseases may also benefit from higher fish consumption. The researchers plan to investigate the potential of parvalbumin in the future studies.
