Nutritional information: Eat (oily) fish!

I'd already received the 'oily fish message' but this is another piece of research showing that we should endeavour to eat more salmon and mackerel.

Suits me, I love it.

I'm by no stretch of the imagination a nerdy health-eater but I thought it would be interesting to note these studies in a new label: nutrition and see what comes up. am particularly keen to see conflicting studies (For example: A UK study has cast doubt on claims that eating oily fish can protect against dementia in old age.)! The trouble is that very often the news article I see (in the general press) may not have the full details regarding the sample of those tested. I saw an interesting programme about vitamins which exploded the claims the manufacturer's made on their packs (I'll try and find it). 

Oily fish 'can halt eye disease'

Mackerel is rich in omega 3
People with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) should eat oily fish at least twice a week to keep their eye disease at bay, say scientists.

Conclusion: Eat oily fish twice a week.

Suits me. Okinawa's got some of the tastiest and cheapest salmon and mackerel I've ever eaten. Has been a definite staple for us over the last year ;)

Nice work you two! (Just don't read the NEXT post!)

I like roasting fresh mackerel fillets with a little lemon and fennel.
