environmental issues a respected norwegian environmental activist by the
name of kurt oda Calv believes that the farming of salmon is a disaster both for
the environment and for human health among the Norwegian fjords that contains
salmon farms there is said to be a layer of waste about 15 metres high
consisting of bacteria drugs and pesticides the sea floor is apparently
destroyed and due to the sea farms being situated in open water there is no way
to contain the pollution as a result of these farms upwards of 2 million salmon
can’t be held in crowded spaces with the crowded conditions leading to disease
that spreads rapidly through the stressed salmon Oda calve reports that
sea lice as well as infectious salmon anemia virus has spread across Norway
while consumers are not informed of the fish pandemics and continue to purchase
deceased fish toxins despite fish always being known as
healthy food Oda calve proclaims that today’s farmed salmon is one of the most
toxic foods in the world jerome ruzhin a toxicology researcher has confirmed
these claims having tested a number of different food groups sold in Norway for
toxins he has determined that farmed salmon
contains the greatest amount of toxins among them by an incredibly large margin
it has been concluded that farmed salmon is in fact five times more toxic than
any other product tested harmful to children and pregnant women
dr. Anne lease Burt’s Monson a prominent biologist at the University of Bergen
Norway stated I do not recommend pregnant women children or young people
eat farmed salmon it is uncertain in both the amount of toxins salmon contain
and how these drugs affect children adolescents and pregnant women she adds
that the contaminants detected in farmed salmon have a negative effect on the
brains development associated with autism as well as having an effect on
other organ systems in the body’s immune system and metabolism cancer according
to living traditionally eating more than one meal of farmed raised salmon in a
month can increase your risk of developing cancer in the future due to
the salmon containing cancer-causing chemicals and high levels of dioxins
furthermore farmed salmon is also said to provide your body with higher levels
of inflammation which leads to many diseases namely cancer diabetes
arthritis and Alzheimer’s the evidence is conclusive that farmed salmon is
essentially both damaging to our bodies and the environment despite fish being
one of the healthiest foods we can eat we need to be mindful about choosing the
right fish in the industrial age documentaries continue to surface with
facts and research that have people thinking twice about consuming processed
foods and any animal products as well there are many great alternative fish
and food choices that are handled in a healthier way for our consumption and
it’s important to stay aware and informed of what you eat and how it got
to your plate it’s safe to say that oftentimes we overlook what is behind
the food that is in front of us with the growing movement
of people straying away from animal product consumption we are naturally
beginning to learn more about why people are cutting out this aspect of their
diets filet-o-fish by director Nicolas Daniels takes a critical look at the
fishing industry investigating fish farms and factories all over the world
in an extensive initiative towards educating people on the fish they
consume though our perception of fishing is rather romanticized according to

entirely different story so what do you think do you eat a lot of tilapia or
