Scientists discover key to easing aquaculture's reliance on wild-caught fish
(University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science) For the first time scientists have been able to develop a completely vegetarian diet that works for marine fish raised in aquaculture, the key to making aquaculture a sustainable industry as the world's need for protein increases. "This makes aquaculture completely sustainable," said Dr. Allen Place. "The pressure on natural fisheries in terms of food fish can be relieved. We can now sustain a good protein source without harvesting fish to feed fish." (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

Asian Indians are one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the United States, and roughly half a million people of Indian ancestry live in California — more than any other state. Individuals from this group are strongly predisposed to obesity-related conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, due in large part to physical inactivity, diets low in fruit and vegetables, and insulin resistance.   Among other racial and ethnic groups, research has shown that religious practices and religiosity have been associated with obesity and greater body weight, but no one had studied this potential link among Indians. ...

Eating oily fish may lower anxiety when pregnant
”Eating fish during pregnancy can help reduce feelings of anxiety ahead of giving birth,” advises The Daily Telegraph. The story is based on research which asked more than 9,500 pregnant women about their diets and their levels of anxiety. Women who ate oily fish one to three times a week were less likely to report high levels of anxiety than those who never ate it. Some other findings of the study were largely ignored by the media. For example, women whose diets conformed to more health conscious patterns (for example, those high in foods such as fruit, salad, oat and bran cereals, and fish) or traditional pa...
