Eating More Fish May Help May Improve Health

By Tom Herrin

Some people knock themselves out trying to find the best way to improve their diet so that it can support better health.  It is not quite so simple, and there is seldom just one way for everyone.  With that said, there are a few things that are somewhat universal in that they can make the kind of difference that may be able to last.  One of the easy things to do for a diet is to add something that may boost it.  One of the simplest to add is fish.  Most people are aware that some places rely on fish for much of their protein.  These often have fewer of the issues that many other places experience.  Eating fish on a regular basis has been proven to have some great benefits.

It May Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease

Whether it is due to poor diet, lack of exercise, or some other cause, heart issues are pretty common.  Some people actually ignore much of it, but many make every effort possible to address the problems.  Having fish as a regular part of a diet has shown much promise in helping to prevent some of these problems.  A study of more than 40,000 men who ate fish at least once per week found that they had a 15 percent lower risk of heart disease.  Much of this is attributed to the omega-3 fatty acids present in fatty fish.

It May Help With Depression

The number of people who suffer from depression seems to continue to grow.  It has been noted that eating fish may help to deter some of this.  Studies have found that people who eat fish regularly have less depression, and eating fish appears to make antidepressant medication more effective.  It is not a bad idea for sufferers to give eating more fish a try.

It May Help Protect Vision as You Age

Many of us begin to have problems with our vision as we age.  Eating fish is known to help people to avoid some common problems that affect the eyes.  Each year, when I get an eye exam, my doctor reminds me to eat more fish or take fish oil supplements.  I like fish, so I try to eat it when I can.  I keep a few cans of sardines around, so when I am hungry for a snack, I will open a can of sardines and have them with some crackers.  Of course, I enjoy salmon, tuna, and many other kinds of fish.  A good broiled, baked, or grilled fish always makes a popular meal at our house and can build health.
