The study findings are published in the May issue of the journal Archives of Ophthalmology.
Fish, fish, fish! That’s all I read in the papers these days – nothing but stories about how piscine-rich diets confer a clearly unfair health advantage over those centered around consumption of flesh from cloven hoofed animals.
What if I’m a hearty meat-and-potatoes type and suddenly I come across this story while tucking into my breakfast steak some morning? Wouldn’t I feel a bit discriminated against? Might I just set my jaw and announce to the world that “It just ain’t fair!” Why, this type of abuse could even endanger my life – just look at this headline, also from today:
Of course, I could always start cooking a filet or two, in between the pot roasts and porterhouses that bring such tidings of comfort and joy. I wonder how much fish you have to eat in order to avoid going blind…
Higher fish consumption, both total and broiled/baked, was also inversely associated with neovascular AMD,” the authors wrote. They said that eating more than two medium (4-ounce) servings of fish a week, or more than one medium serving of broiled or baked fish, was associated with a lower risk for advanced AMD.
Two four-once servings – is that all? I was afraid you had to cram it in like you were at the Feeding of the Five Thousand. I suppose I could tell Jeeves to tell the cook to prepare a fish dish every Monday and Thursday – or maybe I should just hold off until I need glasses…
Too bad our friends in the fast-food industry can’t put a little docosahexaenoic acid in their hamburgers – or would that just be playing to our vices?
