New research shows that eating fish from an early age can counteract diseases such as asthma.

The research report was published internationally in the research publication Nutrience, writes NRK.

The study was conducted on 4,000 children who were followed from birth to the age of six and were carried out by researchers at St. Olav’s hospital and NTNU.

“If the child eats fish once a week at one year of age, then it has about 30 percent reduction of allergy-related diseases up to six years of age,” says associate professor Torbjørn Øien at the Department of Community Medicine and Nursing at NTNU.
