According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, eating fish regularly can reduce risk of colorectal cancer which affects both colon and rectum. The research conducted by the University of Oxford and the International Cancer Research Centre says, eating fish - lean, oily, fatty or white- at least three times a week can develop the resistance and reduce risk of colorectal cancer by 12 per cent.
The researchers studied the association between the risk of colorectal cancer and consumption of fish, as the major source of omega-3 fatty acids and claimed the reduction in risk of colorectal cancer was due to exposure to omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. According to researchers, the study was premised on the unclear association between intake of fish and long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and colorectal cancer.
Eating fish has numerous health benefits as it is full of nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D. According to Department of health, US, omega-3 fatty acids in fish may help prevent and treat depression. It may also aid other mental conditions, such as bipolar disorder. Furthermore, it helps lowering blood pressure and reduces risk of heart attacks, abnormal heart rhythms and strokes. It also decreases risk of depression, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and diabetes.
Drink Tea to get better organized brain functioning Researchers have found that regular tea drinkers have better organized brain regions and this is associated with healthy cognitive function as compared to non-tea drinkers. "Our results offer the first evidence of positive contribution of tea drinking to brain structure, and suggest that drinking tea regularly has a protective effect against age-related decline in brain organization," according to a study authored by Feng Lei, Assistant Professor from the National University of Singapore.
