According to new studies, eating leaner fish reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by nearly 30%.
Lean fish contain little fat (0-3%).
The study was conducted by the Institute of Marine Research in collaboration with the National Institute of Public Health (FHI), Oslo University Hospital, and the universities of Oslo and Bergen.
The researchers looked more closely at the connection between type 2 diabetes and diet, especially with regard to lean fish, oily fish, and omega 3 supplements.
“Increased intake of lean fish reduced the probability of developing type 2 diabetes by 29% for the entire group,” senior researcher Jannike Øyen, the first author of the article and project manager at the Institute of Marine Research, noted.
The effect of eating more lean fish was stronger in those participants in the study who were defined as overweight.
No similar effect was recorded for oily fish or omega 3 supplements.
