Kerry Grens writing in Reuters reports that, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, seniors who eat large amounts of fish may preserve their bone density better than seniors who eat less fish.

While men who consumed dark fish or tuna at least three times per week had less bone loss than other males.
