Although salmon is often recommended as part of a healthy diet, there’s an ongoing debate about whether farmed or wild is best to eat, and whether one type in particular may actually be dangerous.
There’s no denying that salmon contains many essential omega 3’s which are known to be good for your brain, many consider fish ‘brain food’ because of how essential these nutrients are for brain health. Unfortunately, farmed fish, particularly salmon and tilapia, are doing more harm than good. As awareness grows, many experts are now claiming that farmed fish is one of the most toxic foods in the world.
What’s The Problem with Fish Farms?
Fisheries of today face a series of issues including over-fishing, chemical pollution and even genetic mutation from toxic exposures. In Nicholas Daniel’s documentary, “Fillet-Oh-Fish” a critical eye is pointed at the fish farming industries across the globe and features exclusive, insider footage from fish farms and how they operate. According to the producers of the film, “through intensive farming and global pollution, the flesh of the fish we eat has turned into a deadly chemical cocktail.”
The reality is that fish farms are actually causing more problems than they are solving and once again, it seems that turning a profit is more important to these corporations than actual sustainability or environmental concern.
