Heard a report on the radio the other day. It seems that a problem that Alzhiemer's patients caregivers have is getting the patient to stay focused long enough to eat. A study was done which found that the "Nutrition" of the patients (I assume this means how much they ate) increased by 16% or so when the patients were fed near a fish tank with large brightly colored fish. The study hasn't been duplicated and there are plans to see if the fish or the sound of the running water ? are the key. We Knew that fish help, everything, except maybe our budgets and some relationships. It is nice to know that the scientific community agrees.
