Default Fish

Does eating fish really help improve your intelligence? I have heard this time and time again and just wondered. I ask because I was out for fish on Friday night for lent and the table next to me made a comment about it. One person said Wow I can actually feel myself getting smarter. I had to chuckle at that one.

I think being healthy makes you smarter. Perhaps eating fish instead of cheeseburgers with baccon and BBQ sause will have a knock-on effect for being smarter. But beyond that, I doubt it.

There is a strong relation between eating fish and brain development. If you have low levels of omega 3 fats, it can result in learning difficulties, mental illness and behavioral problems.

Omega 3 is crucial for brain development. Fat in general is necessary for proper brain development. I hate to think about parents who put their kids on low fat diet just because they are on one

I'm always a bit nervous saying this, as I expect torches and pitchforks outside my door immediately after, but I believe there is a correlation between the modern low fat, high refined carb diet and the increase in ADHD, Autism, and other developmental issues.

I agree with everything said here.

I make sure to give my kids healthy fat rich foods.

I agree with this as well. From my personal research I feel comfortable with these conclusions.

The Human Brain - Carbohydrates

Brain health dramatically improved by intake of omega-3 fatty acids and fish oils


In addition to that, I also learned that egg was great prior to exams, so who knows, really. In it's simplistic form, a sensible diet is key without the focus on any one particular food or food group taking precedence.

Agreed 100%. There seems to be much more of this these days and it is all because of how we let our kids eat.

Fats > carbs.

I've read so much here lately on why fats are so important to the body and we can live without carbs that it's not even funny. Plenty of studies show that glucose isn't the bodies preferred source of energy - fatty acids are. Not to mention glucose has also caused diabetes and such.

They say fish is good for brain development, then they tell us not to eat it because the mercury will make us go retarded? Lol.
