Fish farms like to claim the opposite of what most of us call truth - but let's just call it spin - on a whole range of subjects, for instance that farmed salmon is a healthy, nutritious food. That being the case, it is worthwhile, from time to time, to remind yourself that eating a farmed salmon is eating one of the most chemical filled foods on earth, despite what fish farms say.
Here is that graph from the EU I have put up before, on the chemicals in a range of our meat products. You will note that farmed salmon has 10 times the cancer-causing, and other, chemicals, including more fat than pizza, than chickens, eggs, pigs, cows and other common meats. Yes, dioxins cause cancer.
So, healthy, nutritious, safe? No, I don't think so. When the negative contents of farmed fish are staring you in the face, all you can do is, shake your head and lose respect for companies like Marine Harvest, Cermaq, Grieg Seafood and Cooke Aquaculture, who are saying the opposite of the truth.
Now, here is another image that will keep you reading the chemicals in farmed fish for awhile. There are lots of things, like flame retardants. Take a good look, and when someone tells you they might buy some farmed fish, make sure to tell them they are buying a meat filled with cancer-causing and other chemicals and implore them to buy a safer, nutritious, healthy food, in fact, anything other than farmed salmon.
Take a good look. It is going to take you a while to read all the chemicals. Good reason to not buy farmed salmon.
