Now It's Brain Food, Memory Food, and Anti-Stroke Food

Fish is truly good for you. The medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology is reporting in the August issue of their magazine that eating fish may prevent stroke and memory loss in old age.

Brain scans showed that eating fish three times a week correlated with a reduced formation of lesions that can cause dementia and stroke. We still need to keep two things in mind, though. First, it's important to avoid (non-Freddy) mercury poisoning. Second, the study showed that fried fish doesn't help, which isn't exactly a surprise.
