According to Medicaldaily, scientific studies have established the beneficial effects of eating seafood that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, especially when it replaces less healthful foods like meat, Eric B. Rimm, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard Medical School said.
The AHA Circulation Journal recommends that it is good for eating two portions of fish equivalent to 100 grams of fish twice a week. It is encouraged to eat fatty fishes such as salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines or tuna.
Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids is emphasized to reduce the risk of health problems, including heart diseases, arthritis, dementia and some mental health conditions.
Fish is an important source of protein and other nutrients for babies and pregnant or lactating women, according to Dr. Stephen Ostroff from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
