Study finds fish good for brain

Eating baked or broiled fish on a weekly basis may improve brain health.

A new study presented in Chicago lends more support to the idea that a diet rich in fish is beneficial.

Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center studied the brains of people who ate fish regularly.

They found an increase in brain volume and higher levels of working memory.

There's speculation the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oils may reduce inflammation of the brain and play a role in brain development and nerve cell regeneration.
