Food for brain - Fish?

Fish is brain food -- right? It certainly might be.

Experts typically recommend eating fish twice a week because of the omega-3 fatty acids that make it a heart-healthy source of nutrition. Now, it seems fish might be brain-healthy too.

Preliminary studies suggest that the wonder of omega-3 (docosahexaenoic acid or DHA, to be more official) also boosts brain power. Makes sense since DHA comprises much of the cell membranes in our brains. Food folks love this news and are busy adding DHA to foods like yogurt, soy milk, and eggs, while marketing their products with clever slogans. Do their food items really enhance mental performance, though?

What you have to say?
