Eating fish may slow memory lose in elderly people: study

Houston: Eating fish at least once a week may slow down the process of memory loss in elderly people, a new study has found. Fish is a direct source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is essential for neurocognitive development and normal brain functioning, according to the study by Chicago-based Rush University Medical Center.

Martha Clare Morris and her colleagues of the Medical Center analysed data collected from Chicago residents -- 65 years and above -- on their food habits and found that dietary intake of fish slows down cognitive decline in thinking, reasoning, remembering and imagining. The team first interviewed them between 1993 and 1997 and and then twice later after every three years. ">Eating fish may slow memory lose in elderly people: study: "12th OCT 11:20 hrs IST
