Fish is great.: Fish is a healthy source of lean protein for a woman Just don't fry it, because that would defeat the purpose. Try to grill, broil or bake. Just don't eat it every day, as you'd have to worry about the Mercury content.

Internal Medicine 35 years experience
WHEN YOU ARE 80,: You typically are dealing with aging related conditions like heart disease and diabetes, just to mention the 2 most common. Chronic medical conditions tend to make your immune system a bit more sluggish at times. The good news is, over 80 years you have been exposed to a lot more bugs than someone in their 30's, so your immune "memory cells" have been programmed and are ready to minimize problems.
