Seafood carries many health benefits

The health benefits of seafood are being promoted by many groups. Seafood is low in fat, calories and carbohydrates. The American Heart Association recommends that people eat fish at least twice a week. The Marine Products Export Development Authority claims that seafood helps ward off heart disease as well as controlling diabetes and depression. The US government's food pyramid has even been adjusted to reflect the need to eat more fish and less refined grains. The omeg-3 fatty oil found in fish promotes heart health, joint flexibility and brain development as well as maybe reducing the risk of rheumatoid arthritis. These recommendations have been supported by the findings of more than 5,000 studies conducted around the world.
