Eat Fish… Or Not.
June 17, 2008
This article starts in a promising manner about how eating oily fish can reduce risk of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). But then in the last sentence of the article this appears: “In a separate analysis, consumption of fish oil supplements had no effect on the risk of rheumatoid arthritis.” So, where is the beef?
Eating oily fish at least once a month may help fend off of rheumatoid arthritis, a large observational study has suggested.
People who reported eating one or more servings of oily fish each month had a 20% lower risk of rheumatoid arthritis compared with individuals who reported seldom or never eating oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and herring, Annmarie Wesley of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, reported here at the European League Against Rheumatism congress.
