Fish Fine For Pregnant Women?

According to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, fish may very well be fine for pregnant women. Many fish—including mackerel and salmon—contain a significant amount on of omega-3 fatty acids. These polyunsaturated fatty acids are actually very much needed by the human body.

Humans are not capable of producing them. Therefore people must get them through their diet or special supplements. Omega 3 consists of EPA and DHA.

They aid in the improvement of the immune function and cardiovascular health. Additionally, they reduce, prevent and control chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is reportedly potentially responsible for numerous diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes.

Doctors recommend that pregnant women take omega 3 supplements. Omega 3 is important to the development of a fetus’ brain.

Due to water pollution, however, it is generally theorized that fish can potentially contain a high level of mercury. Mercury poisoning is considered a threat to both the pregnant mother and the baby.

The new study, however, indicates that the relationship between pregnancy and potential mercury levels in fish is not so cut and dry. The new research indicates that it is possible that the many benefits outweigh any presently known risks.

Following an experiment wherein pregnant women consumed fish for a period of weeks, an analysis of the resulting data demonstrated that omega 3 from fish may very well have actually protected a fetus’s brain from any possible mercury effects. The researchers feel that further studies need to be done in order to fully investigate all the benefits of fish in regards to Omega-3 fatty acids and their ability to neutralize mercury.

Phillip Davidson, Seychelles Child Development lead study author, concluded: “It appears that the relationship between fish nutrients and mercury may be far more complex than previously appreciated. These findings indicate that there may be an optimal balance between the different inflammatory properties of fatty acids that promote fetal development and that these mechanisms warrant further study.”
