Eating fish provides the body with essential vitamins and minerals required for good health.
Fish contains an oily substance called Omega-3. It is claimed that Omega-3 improves the circulation by clearing out the blood vessels.
The Omega-3 in fish, helps to keep the joins lubricated and stops them swelling up. Swelling of the joins is rheumatoid arthritis. Eating plenty of fish throughout a lifetime could prevent this disease. Anyone suffering with pain caused by this type of arthritis has limited choices in how to control this crippling pain. This inflammatory condition, often leads to inflammation in other parts of the body. Inflammation of the lungs is a prime example. In the lungs, the inflammation manifests itself in a number of ways; via chest pains, a lingering cough and shortness of breath. Prevention is always the best medication. Try buying and eating more fish.
Scientist have been looking to see if Omega-3 can lessen the symptoms of common depressions such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD disease) and post-natal depression. Could eating fish can make you happier? There's only one way to find out!
Vitamin A or Retinol also found in fish, helps to keep the eyesight clear. Vision can become blurred in old age due to retina damage.
Eating fish regularly might reduce another common lung complaint - Childhood Asthma. Find new and exciting ways to tempt children to eat more fish and see if this improves the condition. Childhood asthma is difficult to manage and interferes with everyday life, play-times, sporting activities, school in general and the sleeping patterns for both the sufferer and those managing the condition.
It is OK to eat fish whilst pregnant. Eat tiny amounts of shellfish and other fish known to be contaminated by mercury eg trout. It is also best to avoid eating raw fish during pregnancy, as an added safety measure.
Many fascinating scientific discoveries are linked to eating fish. Scientists tell us that the brain, is mainly made up of a fatty substance known as Omega-3. Omega 3 is present in most fish. Other sources of Omega 3 are limited. Plant oils like flaxseed, soybean and canola oil are likely substitutions for vegans and vegetarians looking to get their Omega-3. The trouble is, on their own, none of these oils are that appetising .
Keeping a healthy brain means that dementia, a deterioration of the brain, is less likely to happen. The foods eaten are only one factor in controlling this disease. The right foods, including fish, does play a significant role.
The Omega-3 in fish could improve the concentration skills of children. Some children think that they are allergic to fish, others claim that they do not like the taste or smell. In some cases this is true, in other cases it might be because they haven't been introduced to fish at a young enough age. Keep offering it up anyway. Children often change their habits.
There might be a link between low levels of Omega-3 and children who are having trouble learning to read, or sit still during learning times. In my experience If a child is struggling to sit still in the classroom or the kitchen table; it is most likely that the child is uninterested in what is being taught . Do not assume that it is a case of ADHD. ADHD is often mis-diagnosed. Very young children are not designed to sit still for long periods of time. Including more fish into a child's eating habits is a worthwhile experiment.
Other nutrients in fish are : iodine (thyroid function), selenium (a cancer fighting enzyme) zinc, potassium as well as Vitamin D.
