A study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that people who regularly eat fish have more voluminous brains than those who do not. This study, led by Dr. Cyrus Raji, found that eating fish—baked or broiled, never fried—is associated with larger gray matter volumes in brain areas responsible for memory and cognition in healthy elderly people. “If you have a stronger hippocampus, your risk of Alzheimer’s is going to go down,” said Dr. Raji.
