Is fish safe to eat?
We still think that fish and seafood are really safe to eat, but who can really know that, right? That’s becoming a very hard question to answer. If you can choose between fresh wild seafood instead of farmed, our first choice will always be the fresh wild one, but we all think that’s all going to change in the future.
The latest reports show that since June, 2015, the radiation in the Pacific Ocean reached the United States West Coast and all the seafood that came from the Pacific Ocean is full with chemicals such as Cesium-137 and Strontium-90, both radioactive. The radioactive chemical Strontium-90 imitates calcium and it ends up getting placed in the human bones, where the radiation destroys the bone marrow causing bone cancers or blood cancers like Leukemia. Wild-caught fish such as Alaskan salmon, Pacific Herring and Canadian White Fish are found with terrible side-effects from the radiation. They are being found bloody, with cancerous tumors throughout their bodies. The ugly truth is that more and more healthy foods are slowly becoming “unsafe” to consume on daily basis.
This is really getting out of hand. Will there be something left in the future, which will be safe to eat? First it was the GMO, then we heard about Monsanto, and now Fukushima radiation is killing all the sea food. Everything we thought it’s safe to eat is becoming dangerous for our health.
But some scientists disagree with that. According to a professor of ocean sciences at the University of Victoria, Jay Cullen, the radiation levels are too low. He compares that if you consume over 40 pounds of salmon a year, the dose that person experiences from consuming fish is about 300 fold. That’s less significant than if you smoke pack of cigarettes a day.
