In a recent study in the United Kingdom, it was revealed that eating omega-3-rich seafood could extinguish depression among women during pregnancy.
The said report that was published in the journal Epidemiology was conducted by Dr. Jean Golding and his colleagues at the University of Bristol.
Dr. Golding later found out a relationship between low omega-3 intake and high risk depressive symptoms.
The research that started in 1991 involves 9,960 pregnant women, monitored during a 32-week pregnancy period. Moreover, the findings show that women who does not ate seafood during the period has a 50 percent chance of being depressed.
Dr. Golding added that they are to pursue more in-depth analysis and further studies but he remains firm on the association of seafood-intake and depression.
He reminded that depression during pregnancy is harmful to both mother and child and should not be taken for granted.
