Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A new study in the current American Journal of Preventive Medicine finds that people who regularly eat baked or broiled fish have more voluminous brains than those who do not -- in such a way that stands to protect them from Alzheimer's disease. People who ate fish once per week were just as well off as those who ate it more frequently. "If you eat fish just once a week, your hippocampus -- the big memory and learning center -- is 14 percent larger than in people who don't eat fish that frequently. 14 percent. That has implications for reducing Alzheimer's risk," said lead researcher Cyrus Raji of UCLA. "If you have a stronger hippocampus, your risk of Alzheimer's is going to go down."

One of the more interesting theories I've read about human evolution dealt with an assumption of a fish heavy diet allowing greater brain power for one of our ancestor species.

I take all that with a grain of salt, as the theories seem to change and shift (as they should), but it looked pretty well reasoned.
