Eating fish helps stave off dementia

Eating at least one portion of fish per week helps to reduce a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and dementia-related illnesses. This was evidenced by international research conducted at the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and published in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA). Ondine van de Rest, a researcher at Wageningen University, collaborated on the study.
