Fish consumption and risk of incident dementia in elderly Japanese: the Ohsaki cohort 2006 study


The study looked at Japanese 65 years old or older and their eating habits in the city of Ohsaki City, Japan. They did a 5-7 year follow up on the incidence of dementia and found that those with the highest fish consumption had a lower risk of incident dementia. This may indicate habitual fish consumption may be beneficial for the prevention of dementia.

TL;DR In healthy elderly people, higher fish consumption is associated with lower risk of incident dementia
