Eating Fish Can Be Very Good
. . . unless you choose a poorer variety, cook it improperly, or it is full of radiation and toxins.
Fish is one of the most heart-healthy foods.
Japanese nuclear disaster scares aside; some kinds of fish are inherently better than others. Smart consumers know what are the safest fish.
Knowing that what is eaten comes from a safe water source is comforting.
One needs to avoid fish with concentrations of mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), pesticides, and dispersant chemicals. Non-water soluble compounds tend to build up in fat. Young children, pregnant and nursing mothers are particularly at risk.
- Sea Bass
- Atlantic Halibut
These species tend to have the highest concentrations of pesticides and mercury. Bass, especially for instance when over 35 inches long, carry unhealthy levels.
Experts suggest that some fish be eaten infrequently, such as once every 14 days.
To be on the safe side, it is recommended that the fish guts, head, and bones be discarded. Eat the filet only.
