Study: Eating Fish Regularly May Protect Brain Health

In a new study, a team of researchers from the University of Bordeaux in France found that higher fish intake is associated with lower levels of markers for vascular brain damage in senior adults, especially in the age between 65 and 74, without previous history of cognitive decline or cardiovascular diseases.Study Eating Fish Regularly May Protect Brain Health

For the current study, the scientists analyzed data collected between March 1999 and March 2001 for the Three-City Study. The analysis included 1,623 people, whose average age was 72.3 years. They all lived in Dijon, France. Those who had a dementia diagnosis, a history of stroke, or hospitalization for cardiovascular diseases, were excluded from the study.

The study’s senior author, Dr. Cecilia Samieri a senior researcher at the University of Bordeaux in France, explains: “Our results are exciting because they show something as simple as eating two or more servings of fish each week is associated with fewer brain lesions and other markers of vascular brain damage, long before obvious signs of dementia appear. However, eating that much fish did not have a protective effect in people 75 years of age and older.”
