Eating fish can help you avoid Parkinson’s disease
Shaking, slow movement, difficulty in walking, sudden stiffness are just some of the things you will experience when you acquired Parkinson’s disease. But this is something you can avoid by eating a lot of fish.
In a new study, which was cited in Medical News Today, it was highlighted that fish contains a protein called parvalbumin that could help people avoid from having Parkinson’s disease.
A calcium-binding protein, parvalbumin is found in large quantities in many types of fish, particularly in muscle tissue, the report said.
“It is the most common trigger of allergic reactions in those who have fish allergies; parvalbumin is able to fire up the immune system by avoiding our digestive juices and passing into the blood,” it specified.
Nathalie Scheers, assistant professor at Chalmers University of Technology, also said that fish is normally a lot more nutritious at the end of the summer, because of increased metabolic activity.
“Levels of parvalbumin are much higher in fish after they have had a lot of sun, so it could be worthwhile increasing consumption during autumn,” Scheers said.
