Full Text: People who eat baked at broiled fish on a weekly basis may be improving their brain health and reducing their risk of developing mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease, according to a study presented November 30, 2011 at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

"This is the first study to establish a direct relationship between fish consumption, brain structure, and Alzheimer's risk," said Cyrus Rail, MD, PhD, from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. "The results showed that people who consumed baked or broiled fish at least one time per week, had better preservation of gray matter volume on MRI in brain areas at risk for Alzheimer's disease."
