Is fish good for our brains?
In May 2018, a study published in Neurology revealed that a diet rich in fish, fruits, nuts, whole grains and vegetables may increase the total brain volume. Researchers at the Erasmus University Medical Centre of Netherlands had studied 4,000 people over a ten year period. They noticed that the brain area responsible for the processing of memories, the hippocampus, was larger in people who had healthier diets.
In Asia, fish is most commonly steamed or deep fried. For children, fresh fish fillet is often used to make fish porridge. Cooked rice is poached in a hearty chicken stock before slices of fish are added in, just before being served hot. A staple at many homes, this dish is simple to prepare, healthy and delicious.
