Salmon contains particularly high levels of vitamin D and selenium, which is also associated with prevention of certain types of cancer. It also contains high levels of DHA (decosahexaenoic acid) which is the main structural fatty acid in the central nervous system and retina. Feeding salmon to preschool children also aids in the prevention of ADHD and can even boost academic performance.
