PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 27, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As a restaurant that specializes in providing affordable, fresh and varied seafood dishes to patrons with a laid-back Southern style, The Wreckfish
is well aware of the many reasons why people love to eat fish--the flavor, the tradition and the health benefits. While researchers have long studied the health benefits of regular fish consumption, scientific discoveries continue to highlight the many advantages to eating a varied seafood diet in moderation. One of the latest discoveries even suggests that eating seafood could help significantly reduce the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.
A recent article
from The Guardian reports, "Eating a weekly portion of salmon or regular servings of other fish such as cod could cut the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis by more than half, research shows. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish, especially oily fish, explain the dramatic drop in someone's chances of developing the chronic inflammatory disease that blights the life of an estimated 690,000 Britons. The Swedish study, reported in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases medical journal, is the latest authoritative endorsement by medical researchers of fish's protective role against a range of illnesses."
In a recent press statement, The Wreckfish comments on the new findings, "It is amazing just how beneficial consumption of varied, fresh seafood can be toward human health. For instance, the American Heart Association recommends people eat fish twice a week as a way to prevent heart attack, lower blood pressure and even protect against stroke. What is even more interesting is that every type of fish may carry unique benefits that can further enhance brain and heart health."
As to what specific fish could help reduce the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, The Guardian explains, "Consumption once a week of salmon or other fatty fish such as trout, kippers or mackerel reduces the risk of rheumatoid arthritis by 52 percent, according to researchers led by Professor Alice Wallin, of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. Eating lean fish such as cod, tinned tuna or haddock four times a week also confers the same benefit, they found."
As a restaurant that provides blackened and grilled salmon selections, along with many other seafood varieties, The Wreckfish makes for an excellent place for individuals to get their weekly--or bi-weekly--dose of omega-3 fatty acids and other important nutrients.
While the article notes that those who eat fish on a regular basis may need to wait 10 years before detecting any health benefits in terms of arthritis prevention, The Wreckfish notes that such an observation should be "reason enough for all individuals to consume seafood on a regular basis as a way to proactively engage in healthy living."
