Children’s risk of developing attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) later in life may be tied to how much fish their mothers ate while pregnant, according to a U.S. study.

兒童在年齡較長時罹患注意力不足過動症(ADHD)的風險,可能與母親懷胎時攝取多少魚類有關,根據一項美國研究。

Researchers writing in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine found that eating at least two servings of fish per week was linked to about a 60 percent lower risk of kids developing certain ADHD-like symptoms.

研究人員在這份發表在「小兒及青少年醫學檔案」 的研究中發現,孕婦每週至少攝取兩份魚類,孩子日後出現某些ADHD症狀的風險可降低約60%。

But elevated mercury levels, which can also come from eating more fish were tied to a higher risk of developing the symptoms, such as hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness.

然而,吃較多魚伴隨而來的汞含量升高,也與出現過動、衝動及不專注等症狀的風險較高有關。
