The Doctors share another reason why fish should have a place in your diet! A study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine looked at over half a million people for 16 years. Both men and women who ate fish like salmon, cod, and haddock cut their risk of cardiovascular disease by 10% and lowered their risk of mortality overall.
Men had a 37% reduction in chronic liver disease mortality and women had a 38% reduction in Alzheimer's mortality.
There are tons of fish out there to try and The Doctors share some of their favorites. OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry is into catfish, plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon likes branzino, and ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says halibut may be his favorite!
Dr. Travis makes one caveat: watch out for fish with high levels of mercury. Dr. Nita adds this is especially important for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
