Researchers See Greater Risk Of Diabetes With Increased Fish Consumption

September 1, 2009: 01:02 AM EST
A study of fish consumption by 195,204 adult American men and women over an 18-year period found that eating two or more servings a week of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids slightly increased, rather than decreased, the risk of diabetes. People who ate fish – which has proven cardiovascular benefits – two to four times a week were 1.17 times more likely to contract diabetes than people who ate fish less than once a month. Those who ate fish at least five times a week were 1.22 times more susceptible to diabetes than those who consumed lesser amounts.
