Seafood and Your Health
If you were reaping health benefits from fish, you may be wrong. The Sustainable Seafood: Why it’s Good For Your Health infographic discusses the toxins and health risks of seafood. One of the largest risks is bio accumulation, which is when toxins like mercury are absorbed by marine life. Additionally, the top predators like tuna are most susceptible to toxins since they are eating smaller fish which also have toxins. In order to get the benefits of seafood while avoiding the risks, the infographic recommends one should eat things like farmed oysters, wild Pacific sardines and farmed rainbow trout which have less than .07 PPM of mercury.
