Eat Fish, Breathe Easy?

Filed under: HEALTH TIPS — mossagrow @ 12:59 am

Eating fish is a good idea. It protects against heart disease and may even ease depression. Now comes news that comsuming oily fish may reduce the risk of developing asthma. In a University of Cambridge study of 770 volunteers, researches found that those with symptomatic asthma were less likely to report having eaten fish at least twice a week throughout the year than those without asthma.

Oily fish such as salmon and mackerel are high in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which, according to study author Dr Bipen Patel, may reduce the production of substances that can cause constriction and inflammation in the airway. More research is needed to confirm this, but in the meantime, enjoy fish for its other benefits.
