Pregnant women are encouraged to mengasup least three servings of fish per week. The contribution of less than three servings caused increased brain disorders in infants.
Thanks to a recent meeting, experts have shown, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish, known as docosahexaenoic acid, is essential for brain development. For brain development of babies from the womb grown, pregnant women are encouraged to eat at least three servings of fish a week.
This was rejected concerns that have been developed to limit fish consumption due to contamination of hazardous substances such as dioxin and methylmercury Kimi.
Professor Jack Winkler, Director of the Nutrition Policy Unit at London Metropolitan University, was quoted by the Telegraph pages, explains the benefits of fish oil is much higher than other risks.
“The study showed that fish consumption makes the brain performance of a child is much better than children of mothers who do not eat enough servings of fish during pregnancy,” he said.
A study published in The Lancet in 2007 showed that 12,000 women pregnant mengasup least 340 grams of fish per week, equivalent to two and one-half servings, has children with a low risk of verbal intelligence is higher.
The new research also suggests that docosahexaenoic acid deficiency may also play a role in the development of behaviors such as hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children.
A study led by Dr. Robert McNamara, Department of Psychiatry at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, has found a child of eight to ten fed docosahexaenoic acid tested to increase brain activity in the tasks of the school children received a placebo.
The fish oil was associated with a number of health benefits for others, including a lower risk of heart disease and cancer, prevent memory loss and arthritis.
