Fish has many different health benefits, and nutritionists claim to eat it regularly, so what are the most important discoveries about it.

A study published in the Scientific Journal (Journal of Internal Medicine) revealed that eating fish would enhance human health and prolong life.

Fish is rich in vitamins and minerals necessary for human health and the body, especially omega-3.

Various scientific studies have revealed that eating fish contributes to reducing the risk of cancer, improving heart health, and reducing inflammation, while other studies have linked omega-3 to improved mental health and vision.

Currently, this study indicated that eating fish, especially rich in omega-3, reduces the risk of premature death and enhances human health.

The researchers were able to come to this conclusion by targeting 240,729 men and 180,580 women for 16 years, and they found that 54,230 men and 30,882 women died during the study.

The researchers reported that the male participants who ate fish regularly had a nearly 9% lower risk of premature death, in addition to:

  • About a 10% reduction in death from heart disease.
  • Reduced risk of dying from cancer by 6%
  • Reduced risk of dying from pneumonia by 20%
  • Reduced risk of death from liver disease by 37%.

As for women, the results were as follows:

  • 10% lower risk of death from heart disease
  • 38% lower risk of death from Alzheimer's disease

The researchers emphasized that to enjoy the benefits of eating fish, it should not be cooked by frying.
