Is Fish a Must or a Never on Your Menu?

By Tom Herrin

People tend to be on one side or the other when it comes to some foods.  It always seems like liver is one of those.  Buttermilk is another one.  People often either can't stand them or love them.  Another food that sometimes falls into this category is fish.  The reality is that most people can tolerate fish to some extent.  With all of the kinds of fish available, people can usually find some kind that they like if they try.  Tuna is one that does not have such a strong taste.  There are others as well.  The bottom line is that fish can be really good for your health.  Including it in a diet can make a difference.

It Can Provide Lots of Nutrients

Fish is generally high in nutritional content.  It has iodine, minerals, and vitamins.  It also has lots of protein without some of the problems associated with the heavier meats that so many people eat.  The big element in fish may be omega-3 fatty acids.  These appear to play a big role in improving health for many people with many conditions.  It is well-known that where people eat more fish, the cultures often have fewer major health problems.

It May Increase Grey Matter

The brain is obviously a unique organ.  Maintaining its function is very different from other parts of the body.  Grey matter is critical for memory, processing information, and controlling emotions.  Apparently, when people eat fish regularly, they can have an increase in the amount of grey matter in some of the centers of the brain.  This makes eating fish a critical part of formulating the healthiest diet possible.

It May Help Sleep

Plenty of people have problems with sleep.  Whether it is because of their busy schedules, noise, blue light, or some other cause, it is an issue that has become increasingly common.  There are times when I have struggled with it myself.  In a six-month study of men who ate a meal of salmon three times per week, the 95 men who participated showed an overall improvement in the quality of sleep as well as performance of daily functions.  It is not surprising as there seems to be a general observation that those who eat a diet regularly containing fish experience better overall health.  Making the effort to find ways to include it in your diet may well pay big dividends.
