  Mackerel and other fishes with green dorsum are collectively referred to ‘herring’ in Japan, which have very high content of unsaturated fatty acids. Researchers have done long-term follow up survey from 1995-2008 targeted in about 90,000 residents who are between 45-74 years old in nine prefectures of Japan. Researchers had recorded the intake amount of eight kinds of fishes such as sardines and eel. Those 8 selected species of fish have higher content of unsaturated fatty acid among ‘herring’.

  Results found that the incidence of liver cancer to the group who absorbed more than70.6g ‘herring’ every day is 36% lower than the group who just took in about 9.6g fishes.
