With the elderly there is a problem and it is becoming a problem among sections of society in Italy. You have to remember though Italy is very stubborn about how we live our lives. We eat well but not too much as that is not good for and we know that sweets will kill us (diabetes is THE No1 killer in Italy). So for us it eat well have the bitter with the sweet and watch the carb's. It is very interesting that societies that are high carbohydrate also all have high obesity problems, while those that are more balanced or have a higher fat/oil intake don't have these problems. The public published experts would have you believe that fats are the enemy of good health; being a physician with advance training and practice in nutrition I don't agree. Than again who am I but a good student of the body and known proven biological functions, compared to published great persons that are so well paid to give their opinions
. Sorry, one of my soapboxes/hot buttons, have done way too much palliative care for those who are dealing with the mid to later stages of diseases born from bad diet that will quote the garbage at me like it is scripture, when in reality there is little real fact behind those positions and what is there is twisted. Again my apologies, very hot button. I have been told that I care too much for my patients and it gets me in trouble.
Now back to discussions of Fish and fishing which is not only for the body as food but also for the enjoyment of the doing.
Edited to add a bit of lightness to a heavy response
