Healthy Fish Dishes Good for Brain


Wondering what to have for dinner tonight? Try a little fish prepared in a healthy way.

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine found that eating baked or broiled fish once a week is very good for the brain.

This is another instance where scientific studies have shown that lifestyle factors can contribute to a healthy brain later in life. Other studies have predicted that being active, not smoking and keeping weight at a healthy level all contribute to fewer cases of Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive impairment in older adults. All good news since these are choices most of us can make.

The results of the  study were published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
