Fish keeps you fit after the age of 65
Not only nuts protect people over sixty against fraility. A diet with relatively much fish has a similar effect.
In 2016, all study participants were over 65.
In their article published in BMC Geriatrics, epidemiologists from the University of Oslo investigated whether study participants who had frequently eaten fish during the study were less likely to be pre-frail in 2016. In previous posts we wrote that lifestyle factors such as frequent consumption of nuts, the use of olive oil, a lot of physical activity, a high intake of proteins and antioxidants and a high intake of vegetables reduce the risk of frailty. The researchers wondered whether fish consumption also belonged in this list.
The study participants who consistently ate a lot of fish were 41 percent less likely to be pre-frail as people over 65. Both oily fish and lean fish protected against fragility.
