Link: Eat Fish To Avoid Alzheimer’s

My canned fish collection

My canned fish collection

Here’s an article with a straightforward title: “To Reduce the Risk of Alzheimer’s, Eat Fish.”  Turns out there’s a catch: fish only help if you happen to carry a gene associated with the disease. Still, if we don’t know whether we have that gene, eating fish sounds like a good idea.

I’ve been a believer in fish, particularly fatty fish, for quite a while — but because they are rich in Omega 3s, which help with cholesterol. Take a look at the fish collection in my cupboard. And now, for an anchovy sandwich.

    I like fatty fish too. As long as one doesn’t fear mercury poisoning 😬 it is good all aroun🤗d.

      Mercury is why I try to eat far down the food chain — mostly anchovies and sardines; but salmon or tuna once in a while keeps things interesting.

        Ray Copson is a favorite advocate for senior citizens and my historian friend even if he lunches on oysters, anchovies and canned sardines!
