Diabetes cases may be continuously on the rise in different parts of the world, but an ongoing research featured on Science Daily reveals that a simple shift in diet may help lower the risk.

According to the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study (KIHD), which involves 2,212 men between 42 and 60, those who had the highest levels of serum omega-3 fatty acids were 33 percent less at risk for type-2 diabetes than those who had the lowest levels.

In conjunction with having a well-balanced diet, researchers recommend having two fish meals a week, which may include “salmon, rainbow trout, verdancy, bream, herring, anchovy, sardine, and mackerel.” Aside from helping with diabetes, WebMD notes that omega-3 may also help with managing obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and even help protect against dementia.
