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.

Herbs that kill and expel worms and parasites include:

  • Black Walnut Hulls (green)
  • pink root
  • wormwood
  • cloves
  • southernwood
  • tansy
  • pumpkin seed
  • betel nut
  • wormseed
  • neem
  • peach tree bark
  • quassia
  • cayenne, and
  • goldenseal

    Q: Hi it's me again. I just read what you said about meat and what I don't understand is if meat was not good for us why in the Bible people eat Lamb. How would you explain back in the Bible times during Abraham and Moses when they use to offer sacrifice and kill a lamb were they cruel and going against God. And those who couldn't afford animals like Lamb would use bird eggs. In the book of Exodus chp. 12: 11,21,27,43,48 and Lev. 23:5 and 12:3, Deut. 16:7and Exodus 34:25 when the death Angel was passing and God told them to kill a Lamb and put the blood on the door post and gave the command for them to roast it. How would you explain that because up until this day the Jews still eat Lamb. Even fish, it was fish that God used to feed the 5000 people. Are you saying I can't eat fish at all. I would like to know some of the things you eat in the place of meat , fish and chicken. I really want to change my eating habit.

    A:

    All meat consumption came AFTER the Fall of Man (Genesis Chapter 6). Man can eat meat while in a degenerate state but to return back to Eden he/she must go back to plant foods. Also, meat today is greatly TAINTED unlike meat 4,000 - 6,000 years ago! It's not the same. Jews are not the healthiest people, by the way! Health conscious people are!

    Q: Back in November 2007 I ate fish (grouper) at a restaurant and later that day I broke out in hives. I've never been allergic to fish before and I've never had hives before. Since that day I've had the hives (7 months), they come and go only because I have been controlling them somewhat now with "Xyzal" (antihistamine). I was given two separate rounds of prednisone (steroid) and I took weeks worth of benadryl. With the steroid I gained 10 lbs. Nothing helped until I started taking Xyzal. My question is I don't want to keep taking the antihistamine for the rest of my life to keep them away. I don't know what it was in the fish or maybe it just was a coincidence that it happened that very same day but I would like to know if there is anything you would suggest to help?

    A:

    You need to cleanse. Take a look at our Full Body Cleanse. You're body is telling you to cleanse.

    Q: I have incorporated fish into my diet because I have been craving.

I am praying that my results will be negative.

    Q:

    A: You're compromising the results of your cleanse if you eat foods outside the diet. We cannot say what your results will be. We only know the results you should see when you're following the diet and the regimen as instructed. The main purpose for the raw food diet is benefit from the foods and to give your body a break from the foods it’s accustom to. You’re giving your body everything that it needs, not what it wants. You can’t expect to achieve better health or lose weight eating the same foods that contributes to the issues.

    Q: I finished my FBD yesterday. Is it normal for people who have done detox hard to eat food I used to eat? I mean meat, fish, etc...I don't have that much appetite somehow. Is this normal? I am thinking about doing Female Cleanse in a week or so...My question is how many time do I need to cleanse my body? I understand it is depend on person but I need to find out.

    A:

    We would recommend to incorporate as many of the raw foods you ate during your cleanse into your diet post-cleanse. Try to find a balance with healthy, nutrient-dense foods.

    A person can detox 2-4 times per year to cleanse their bodies of any impurities acquired due to lifestyle and environmental factors.

    Q: I will be starting a fast for Ramadan in August. What suggestions do you have for cleansing during fasting? I do not eat meat except, fish 1-2 times a week. I've been having problems with gas after eating, even fruits or veggies. I usually have 2-3 bowel movements per day. I am a 56 year old male with good health, except for my problems with gas, varicose veins and leg cramps especially during fasting.

    A:

    Cleanses for Ramadan should be LIQUID-based i.e. Liquid Full Body Detox, or perhaps drinking herbal teas i.e. Detox Tea. To combat or counter your gas (flatulence), start consuming Activated Charcoal (Carbon) 1 teaspoon in a glass of water daily (anytime of the day you feel like it). Work on your colon too. We suggest you try our 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse to help this problem of gas.

    Q: I am wondering if its possible to still become pregnant, after having an abortion at age 17. I'm now 35, and I have had a cyst removed from the right ovary back in 1999, when I was told my fallopian tubes were blocked. I practice a fairly holistic lifestyle, which I still eat fish in fear of not getting enough protein, but I haven't been pregnant since 1992.

    A:

    Simply perform the Full Body Detox, ( drink female Health Tea while on this cleanse), read our 'Mental Science Manual', and 'Love Manual' which is great reading. The manuals shows you how to use your mind, and heart to heal disease, disorders, and injuries. These are very important tools in the healing process. After you detox, perform the Total Woman Cleanse. After the TWC, complete the Fertility Cleanse.
