Here fishy, fishy

There is a vast difference between wild caught fish and farmed fish. The most aspect is farmed fish don’t have as much omega-3 as wild salmon.
Let me begin by reaffirming what we all already know: fishes were never meant to eat corn, grains, or poultry and pork for that matter.
In addition to this unnatural diet, farmed fish of all species are also given a concoction of vitamins, antibiotics, and synthetic pigments to make up the look we like to see in a fillet of fish. Only wild-caught salmon actually has the beautiful pink color; they have to fake it when it comes to the farm-raised variety. And, the chemical they used to do it, called canthaxanthin, can actually cause problems with the pigments in the retina of your eye. In fact, it’s such a worry that it’s been banned in the UK, EU and Australia.
The fish are also fed pesticides, along with compounds such as toxic copper sulfate, which is frequently used to keep nets free of algae. Commercial fish farming involves raising an incredible number of fish in a limited space. The downside to this kind of moronic farming is the increased need for chemicals to control the altered environment. More than 60% of the salmon consumed in the United States comes from a farming operation where they are treated with antibiotics, pesticides, and other carcinogenic chemicals to try and control the bacterial, viral, and parasitic outbreaks that result from cramming so many fish in a small space.
One of the biggest risks you take when you take a bite of that farm-raised fish for dinner is that you’re eating dioxin. Studies have found that dioxin levels in farm-raised fish are 11 times higher than those of wild-caught fish. And, if risking cancer, organ damage and constant illness due to a weak immune system isn’t enough for you, how about taking a chance of getting diabetes too?
According to research, the reason the farm-raised fish can lead to metabolic syndrome and blood sugar problems is because they are contaminated with persistent organic pollutants or POPs which cause insulin resistance and obesity.
Do you like your fish baked or fried?

  1. I like cooking up a fillet on a cedar plank on the BBQ at the cottage. It’s probably not great for me, but I love the smell.
    I have never eaten a fillet-o-fish at McDonald’s to this day and I don’t think I ever will.
