The Benefits of Eating Fish
Fish is among the healthiest foods on Earth. It is loaded with important nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D; it is a low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, or the “good” fats, that are important for your body and brain. Since the human body can’t make significant amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet. Fish are also low in the “bad” fats commonly found in red meat.
According to Healthline.com, fish:
- is known to reduce risks of heart attacks and strokes
