Should We Eat Fish?

No, humans are non-meat eaters by nature. Eating meat (including fish) is a learned behavior. If you must consume meat, fish is the best option as the body finds it easier to digest.

Dangers

There are many circulating dangers pertaining to fish consumption. There are potentially harmful effects to human health from the chemicals found in fish.

First, most fish today are swimming in methyl mercury-laced waters. Secondly, most of the fish coming from the Atlantic waters near Great Britain are swimming in synthetic hormone-laced waters and many of the fish are turning up dead on the shores of beaches in England. But more surprisingly, scientists are baffled because these dead fish are neutered.

Mercury and other contaminants make fish-eating risky for pregnant women, lactating mothers, young children (12 and under), older people and people who are ill.

Especially dangerous are:

  • Swordfish
  • Shark
  • Tilefish
  • King mackerel

The Washington Post reported that pregnant women, lactating mothers and children 12 and under can safely consume up to 12 ounces of fish per week, but white (albacore) tune should be limited to 6 ounces per week because of high levels of mercury, which can be toxic to the brain and hearing.

Making choices

Many people choose to eat fish because of the high Omega 3 fatty acid content. There are alternatives. You can easily take an omega 3 supplement instead.

Some people simply can’t give up eating meat. If you consume fish often, choose:

  • Whiting
  • Buffalo
  • Trout
  • Red snapper
  • Sardine
  • Tuna (the small ones), and
  • Salmon

Avoid consuming catfish because it is a scavenger fish that eats the filth of the ocean, lakes, and rivers. It even has a menstrual cycle.

Solutions

Those who eat fish quite often should also consume papaya enzymes and cayenne pepper to help kill any traces of parasite or worms found in the fish. You should also detoxify your body every three months.
