Are you buying "toxic fish" at the
grocery store? You've probably already heard about high mercury levels in some types of fish, and even PCB's in some fish too. However, this video goes beyond just mercury and PCBs and shows how your fish that you buy can be tainted with some pretty scary stuff!And how about the fish they found being raised in sewage! Interesting. And the fungicide they found in some fish that can cause birth defects and cancer... Now before you let this video freak you out and swear off fish or seafood for good, here are some things to keep in mind in order to make sure you're getting healthier fish and seafood:1.Most of these problems are always related to farmed fish. Stick to wild fish for the healthiest possible choices. Besides farmed fish sometimes being tainted with harmful chemicals, farmed fish is many times fed an un-natural diet (fish are not meant to eat soy and corn pellets), and this reduces the nutritional value of the fish, and distorts the omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio, making farmed fish less healthy for you.2. Even if you stick to wild fish instead of farmed (which will help avoid many of the chemicals mentioned in the video), you can still overdose on mercury if you eat certain types of fish too often... fish that are high on the food chain accumulate the most mercury... so that would be large predatory fish such as tuna, swordfish, shark, grouper, king mackeral, tilefish, striped bass, etc.By the way, when it comes to canned tuna... white tuna (albacore) has higher levels of mercury than light tuna.For the continuation
