How do you like your fish cooked?

Do you like your fish baked, broiled or fried? Baked and broiled fish contain higher levels of brain-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than fried fish because the fatty acids are more often damaged by the high heat of frying. A recent study in The American Journal of Preventive Medicine shows that people who have diets that include baked or broiled – but not fried – fish have larger brain regions associated with memory and cognition. Simply eating baked or broiled fish once a week brought up to 14% greater grey matter brain volumes in the areas of the brain responsible for cognition. The strange part of this study is that they found no relationship between the circulating blood levels of omega-3 and better brain health. The study conclusion was that eating baked or broiled fish at least once a week is just plain good for the brain. Bottom line: your diet today contributes to your brain health later in life.
