fishWANT smart kids? Then eat fish during pregnancy.

That’s the advice of Spanish scientists after testing 2,000 mothers and their babies at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park.

The study found that mothers who ate 21 ounces of fish or more had smarter children than those who ate no fish at all.

In fact, the study concluded that the amount of fish a mother eats during pregnancy has a direct correlation to an infant’s brain function.

  1. This so-called study smells strongly of it’s subject. It would be simply impossible to measure these figures. The subjects would need (2000 of them) to be followed up from pregnancy to around five years later, when the kid’s intelligence was capable of assessment.
    Be interesting to know which body commissioned this “study” AND paid for it.
