Shrimp

Shrimp usually comes from farms that are raised in over-crowded environments, such as India, Vietnam and Indonesia. Here, shrimp are given pellets that contain antibiotics, while the ponds contain chemicals and fecal matter. This fish can also contain pathogens like E. coli and Salmonella, along with contaminants like rat and mouth hair.

 

A 2009 study has shown that shrimp contains 4-hexylresorcinol – a preservative that is supposed to induce discoloration. It increases the risk of breast cancer in women and causes low sperm counts in men.

Scientists have also discovered that shrimp imported from Thailand and India contains nitrofurazone. This drug can cause overgrowth of fungi and breast cancer. It has been also detected that shrimp contains chloramphenicol, an antibiotic that is banned in food production due to its detrimental side effects, such as leukemia and aplastic anemia.

Tuna

Tuna is a big and long-living fish which may contain higher amounts of mercury. Eating tuna in large amounts can be very harmful since we ingest this chemical. Tuna is also extremely high is sodium. Some brands contain even 350 mg of salt.

Salmo

Scientists discovered extremely high levels of antibiotics in the Chilean salmon that crossed the borders of the U.S in 2014. These antibiotics were supposed to prevent the spread of diseases that can cause hemorrhaging and lesions.

How to avoid the dangers of contaminated fish

Shrimp

This type of fish is rich in protein and selenium, so it can prevent cardiovascular diseases, thyroid disorders and cancer.

In order to avoid contaminated shrimp, make sure you look for shrimp that is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council. Also, ensure you buy wild North American shrimp. It feels firm and its smell is mild.

Tuna

Tuna is the richest natural source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Make sure you avoid cans and buy this fish in BPA-free pouches. Albacore and yellowish tuna contain higher amounts of mercury than Skipjack tuna. In order to prevent mercury buildup in your body make sure you eat no more than 6 ounces tuna per week.

Salmon

Salmon is abundant in polyunsaturated fats and Omega-3 fatty acids. It reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases and helps the development of fetuses. Salmon can provide your body with selenium, vitamin B6, B12, thiamine and niacin.

Make sure you buy Norwegian salmon, because it contains fewer antibiotics. Avoid using cans and always opt for wild Alaskan Salmon since it is less contaminated than the farmed Atlantic salmon.
