THIS Week, Fish Consumption is Linked to Lower Diabetes Risk

Just weeks after I reported about fish consumption being linked to higher risk of type 2 diabetes, a different study reports the opposite.

The Norfolk, England, wing of the European Prospective Investigation of Cancer found a 25% lower risk of developing diabetes in adults who ate one or more servings of fish weekly, compared with those who ate less than that.  What kind of fish?  White fish and oily fish. 

Contradictory results like this are not uncommon in the field of science.
