As I have been working on my thesis and waiting for my knee to heal, I read a few articles on going vegetarian. Being impressed by the benefits of eating fish instead of meat, I challenged myself not to consume chicken, pork or beef for the next two weeks and see whether I feel better or not.
Benefits of eating fish instead of meat:
*Less chance to suffer from asthma
*Omega 3 fatty acids contribute to the health of brain tissue and the retina
*People who consume fish are less likely to suffer from cancer
*Eating fish every week reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke
*Improves blood vessel elasticity
*Lowers blood pressure, blood fats and boosts “good” cholesterol
*Lower risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease
*Lower incidence of depression (depression is linked to low levels of omega 3 fatty acids in the brain)
*Relieves the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and autoimmune disease
*Reduce the risk of delivering a premature baby
Do you feel like eating more fish now?
