Eat Fish For Great Health But Avoid These Bad Ones

Eat fish to stay healthy, happy, and sharp, we are told constantly by doctors and nutritionists. 

I love to eat fish and so should you for many reasons. Fish contain high-quality protein, iodine, and various vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin D and omega-3. Eating fish regularly lowers the risk for heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes. In addition, fish helps prevent and treat depression, improves sleep quality, and reduces risk of Type-1 diabetes.

Eat Fish: But Avoid These

Seafood guidelines always tell us about the good fish we should eat but don’t mention those fish that we should avoid. We list several fish that you should avoid. Here they are:


Eat Fish: Imported Catfish-Bad

90 percent of imported catfish contain contaminated antibiotics.


Caviar are harvested from polluted waters.


Eat Fish: American Eel-Bad

This fish contains PCB’s and mercury contaminants.


Imported Shrimp

Imported shrimp contains E.coli bacteria, chemical residues, mouse and rat hair, as well as insect pieces.


 Atlantic Salmon

Salmon farming is very polluting: Thousands of fish are crammed into pens, which leads to the growth of diseases and parasites that require antibiotics and pesticides.



Orange Roughy And Shark

Contain high levels of mercury.


Atlantic Bluefin Tuna

Atlantic bluefin tuna has the highest levels of mercury of any type of tuna. Avoid it.



Fish is a great food, packed with vitamins and nutrients. Source your fish from inspected and approved companies.
