Find a Place for Fish on Your Menu for Your Health

By Tom Herrin

As people make their grocery shopping lists, they often can do so by copying what they bought the week before.  A regular checklist may be the easiest way for many to make theirs.  If people want to do the most for their health, there are always a few things they should be sure to include.  One of those that gets a lot of attention for its health benefits is fish.  It is considered to be far better for overall health that foods such as beef and pork, partly due to its lean nature.  And what fats are contained in fish are generally thought to be healthy.

It May Help Curb Depression

Without a doubt, depression is an increasingly serious problem today.  It seems that more and more people are affected by it, and it seems to be found anywhere from children to older adults.  Most people have heard considerable mention of omega-3 fatty acids and the many things it can do for people.  It is especially abundant in the cold water fish such as salmon, tuna, trout, etc.  Apparently omega-3 has some effect on depression.  Some studies have indicated that people who eat fish on a regular basis have fewer instances of it.

It May Be a Good Source of Vitamin D

It is believed that more than 40 percent of the U.S. population lacks an adequate amount of Vitamin D.  Eating fish can be a great way of getting what people need.  Fish may be the only food source to contain anything like this.  Other sources would be the sun, supplements, or foods with it added.

It May Help Protect Vision Loss as We Age

I get a yearly eye examination as I have gotten older.  My eye doctor always reminds me to eat fish or take fish oil supplements.  As we age, it has been found that macular degeneration becomes a greater risk.  This can cause us to have impaired vision or actually lose it completely.  Studies have shown that eating fish or taking omega-3 supplements can help to reduce instances of this.  Our family enjoys eating fish, and we try to eat it often.  I like to keep a few cans of sardines around and eat them with some crackers when I need a small boost.  I know it is tough for some because they simply don't like fish, but there are plenty of kinds out there and lots of ways to eat them.  With all of the benefits, it is worth trying to find something you like.
