Benefits of eating fish
Why should we eat fish?
Fish should be consumed two or three times a week, and it has become an indispensable part of our daily menu and diet from past to present due to its oil and protein content.
Fish contains omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids so it extends the aging process of the brain and creates protective effect against certain diseases. It prevents formation of free radicals and cancer cells in our body; if especially prospective mothers consume fish during the last three months of pregnancy, it supports brain and nerve development as well as physical and psychological development, and plays an important role in baby's skin beauty as well as hyperactivity. Mullets and sardines are particularly rich in omega 3.
Fish is a must in our diet in the case of cardiovascular diseases. Fish has effects on clotting, decreases narrowing of arteries and lowers LDL cholesterol and prevents diseases, and has anti-inflammatory effects as well as protective effects on cell membranes.
There are many clinical studies showing that due to its selenium, retinol and vitamin D content, fish helps to build and repair bones and teeth and reduces the risk of breast and prostate cancers.
Fish particularly supports secretion of serotonin(happiness hormone) in people, especially during mid-season, so it is frequently recommended for depression and symptoms of similar diseases.
In short, it is very important to consume fish, which is an important food rich in nutrients and helps to prevent many chronic diseases.
Benefits of consuming fish for men, women and children?
Adults and children should consume well cleaned fish at least two or three times a week. However, pregnant women should consume well cleaned small fish, rather than shallow water fish to prevent heavy metal poisoning and damage to cells of the baby; during pregnancy, it is important to prefer fish of the relevant season as well as small fish such as mullets, anchovies, mackerel,etc. We should pay particular attention to the freshness of the fish. Stale fish and deep-water fish can reveal the risk of food poisoning in people.
How to eat raw fish, which acquired a place in new catering trend, and under which circumstances should it be consumed?
Raw fish began to be consumed as a new trend; it should be consumed carefully during pregnancy because upon receipt of bacteria like salmonella, it may cause damage in the baby's growth and development; consuming too much raw fish is also dangerous in terms of gastroenteritis and the risk of food poisoning. However, considering loss of vitamins and minerals in cooked food, it is perfectly safe for individuals to consume raw fish if the fish is cleaned well and prepared using appropriate materials; individuals who regularly consume raw fish also have been found to have vitamin D, zinc, and iron deficiency. In summary, provided that we don’t regularly consume raw fish with high mercury content, such as tuna, there is no need to be afraid of eating raw fish in limited quantities. This should be evaluated for pregnant women, the elderly and children. These individuals are more susceptible to disease due to their immune systems so they shouldn’t consume raw fish or consume it with caution.
