There May Be Something Fishy Here

By Tom Herrin

Many people are pretty set in their food choices.  It is not that they don't enjoy trying different kinds of foods, but a good part of the time, they are pretty consistent in their tastes.  Meat and potato eaters are usually good as long as that is the bulk of their menu.  Some people can't eat a meal without bread.  Others feel like a salad is what is needed to complete their meals.  On the other hand, there are those who simply can't eat certain foods.  Fish is a food that is often either in or out on someone's menu.  It may be unfortunate for those who have never cultivated a taste for fish because it is a generally healthy food.

It Has Lots of Nutrients

As foods go, it is well known that fish are packed with things that are good for people.  Unlike many other foods, fish that are considered to be fatty are also considered to be the healthiest.  These include salmon, sardines, mackerel, and trout.  These contain more of the omega-3's that have been given so much attention for health properties.  Fish also may contain a good portion of protein.  With other vitamins and minerals added, eating fish is a winner.

It May Reduce the Chances of Heart Disease and Stroke

Fish shows up on virtually every list of heart-healthy foods.  Several studies have shown that eating fish with some regularity can reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke, and heart disease in general.  In one study of 40,000 men who ate fish, at least one time per week, they had a 15 percent lower chance of heart disease.

It May Protect the Brain

Apparently eating fish on a regular basis can help to maintain brain function and help prevent some of those age-related declines in the brain.  Those of us who eat fish regularly also seem to have more grey matter in the centers of the brain.  I like fish and try to eat it at least two times per week.  If nothing else, I will eat a can of sardines in Louisiana hot sauce.  Of course, it comes packed several other ways as well.  Salmon is always popular in our home.  We eat it with crackers and maybe some mayo or whipped salad dressing.  If you don't already eat it, it is worthwhile to find some kind you can enjoy and add it to your menu.
