Farmed salmon, the most toxic food on the planet
As I was preparing to cook a delicious salmon raised without antibiotics, reflecting the good intentions of its farmers, I came across an online documentary about the dark side of aquaculture. I’m reporting it to you here because it is true that it is easy to want to buy a farmed fish, given its abundance in store and its relatively cheap price. The fish is naturally healthy, rich in Omega 3 and DHA. This documentary will unfortunately convince you otherwise.
It is not so much the fact that there are antibiotics or not, or even industrial quantities of pesticides that make it so harmful, but rather an accumulation of a highly toxic products from the fishes own food. What the journalist discovers is that there are much more toxins in farmed fish than any other food source, including beef, eggs and traditional farm chicken. The most devastating of these toxins lies in the dry food fed to the raised fishes. 70% of the salmon eaten on the planet come from Norway. They are fed with a dry porridge of fish from the Baltic Sea, one of the most polluted in the world, landlocked by industrial countries that dump their waste, including Russia, Poland and Germany and whose waters are only renewed every thirty years. These fish are transformed into protein powder and oil to which is added a neurotoxic substance produced by Mosanto to prevent rancidity. The report reveals disturbing facts about a scientist studying this substance and the effects on humans as well as the fisheries minister in Norway. In short, a lot in the same plate. Even the best osteopathic manual therapy won’t take heavy metals out of your brain!
Here is the documentary that will change your menu forever.
