Abstract Objective To assess the association of fish consumption with risk of dementia and its dose–response relationship, and investigate variations in the association among low-, middle- and high-income countries. Design A new community-based cross-sectional study and a systematic literature review. Settings Urban and rural communities in China; population-based studies systematically searched from worldwide literature. Subjects Chinese adults aged ≥60 years in six provinces (n 6981) took… 
Impact of fish consumption on all-cause mortality in older people with and without dementia: a community-based cohort study
It is revealed that consumption of fish in older age reduced all-cause mortality in older people without dementia, but not in people with dementia.
Influence of periodontal disease on risk of dementia: a systematic literature review and a meta-analysis
A systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the influence of PD on dementia and the number of dementia cases to be saved by reducing PD prevalence in the world, finding that Preventing and treating PD could contribute to controlling the global epidemic of dementia.
Diet and Dementia: A Prospective Study
Findings are mostly inconsistent with the idea that Mediterranean diet is associated with lower risk of subsequent incident dementia, while poultry and cereal were not.
In older Chinese, there are large socioeconomic inequalities, and certain lifestyle, psychosocial factors and health-related conditions are strong determinants of fish consumption, including central obesity and heart disease at baseline.
Fish intake, n-3 fatty acid body status, and risk of cognitive decline: a systematic review and a dose-response meta-analysis of observational and experimental studies.
The protection offered by fish intake against cognitive decline levels off at intakes higher than 2 portions/week and likely relates to the impact of EPA and DHA on the individual's executive functions, although there remain questions about the mechanisms linking the short- and long-term effects.
Dementia Prevalence, Comorbidities, and Lifestyle Among Jatinangor Elders
The prevalence of dementia in Jatinangor is high and the identified modifiable risk factors are a potential target for intervention and valuable for designing public health policies.
Risk Factors for Incident Dementia Among Older Cubans
Modifiable lifestyle factors play an important role in developing dementia in Cuban older adults and this knowledge opens up opportunities for preventive strategies.
Fish Consumption and Multiple Health Outcomes: An Umbrella Review of Meta-Analyses of Observational and Clinical Studies

Overall, fish consumption often has beneficial or harmless associations with various health outcomes, but only about 34% of the associations were graded as moderate/high quality of evidence.
Dietary Factors and Neurodegenerative Disorders: An Umbrella Review of Meta-Analyses of Prospective Studies.
The results indicate that the Mediterranean diet, fish, and tea could be inversely associated with neurodegenerative disorders, and the quality of evidence was generally low, suggesting that further studies are likely to change the overall estimates.


Dietary fish and meat intake and dementia in Latin America, China, and India: a 10/66 Dementia Research Group population-based study123
Findings on the associations of fish and meat consumption with dementia risk to populations in low- and middle-income countries are consistent with mechanistic data on the neuroprotective actions of omega-3 (n–3) long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids commonly found in fish.
Nutritional factors and risk of incident dementia in the PAQUID longitudinal cohort.
The results obtained in the PAQUID study regarding wine consumption, fish and seafood consumption and vitamin A and E plasma concentrations are in agreement with a possible protective role of a diet rich in poly-unsaturated fats and antioxidant components.
Fish consumption and risk of depression: a meta-analysis
This meta-analysis indicates that high-fish consumption can reduce the risk of depression and when men and women were analysed separately, a significant inverse association was observed.
Fish Consumption and the Risk of Stroke: A Dose–Response Meta-Analysis
A dose–response meta-analysis indicates that fish consumption is weakly inversely associated with the risk of stroke.
Fish, meat, and risk of dementia: cohort study
All the participants who had lost three points or more on the mini-mental state examination since a previous visit or were suspected of having dementia according to the criteria of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, third edition, revised (DSM-III-R) were visited by a neurologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Accumulated Evidence on Fish Consumption and Coronary Heart Disease Mortality: A Meta-Analysis of Cohort Studies
It is indicated that fish consumption is inversely associated with fatal CHD, and mortality from CHD may be reduced by eating fish once per week or more.
Dietary Patterns and Risk of Dementia: a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Cohort Studies
The MeDi and higher consumption of unsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, and B vitamins decrease the risk of dementia while smoking andHigher consumption of aluminum increase therisk of dementia.
Dietary fat intake and the risk of incident dementia in the Rotterdam study
It is suggested that a high saturated fat and cholesterol intake increases the risk of dementia, whereas fish consumption may decrease this risk.
