A British study found that eating fish twice a week can prevent kidney disease. Nutritional experts also recommend two servings per week for healthy eating.
For the study, researchers analysed 22,000 adults including 517 diabetics. Using a dietary and lifestyle questionnaire participants were asked about their fish consumption habits.
The Result: –The researchers found that people with diabetes who ate less than one serving of fish a week were more likely to have protein in their urine. Protein in the urine is a first sign of kidney disease.
Fish is in the food group ‘ Meat & Meat Alternatives;’ although this is the least important of the four food groups, products such as fish play an important role.
