Well.... this is a disappointing truth. I have to be honest, I've never been a huge fan of salmon until I tasted true wild caught in Washington state a few years ago. #ohmyword! Sadly, I haven't had it since, only because..... well, when you've had the best.... how do you go back to mediocre?
Turns out, mediocre might reflect the flavor, but "toxic" is actually a more justifiable adjective. I'll let you read the article or watch the video yourself. Here are my takeaway 🤯 's:
😳 more than 1/3rd of "wild caught" salmon isn't wild caught.
😳 the world produces more farmed (and toxic) fish than it does beef. Factory farming fish is a danger to the environment by polluting the waterways with excessive crowding , fish waste, and a toxic soup of fish food (made of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, PCB's, and GMO'd crops pelletized into fish food).
😳 the "not wild 'wild caught'" salmon is actually salmon that has escaped factory farming netted pens.
😳 Farmed salmon has 8x higher toxin loads than true wild caught salmon.
😳 Farmed Salmon contains far higher amounts of Omega6's (It's bad for the body to have a high Omega 6 vs Omega 3 ratio)
😳 When a factory farmed salmon breeds with a wild caught salmon, the babies don't tend to survive because they are genetically not equipped.
💗🐟 💗 You can find healthy Salmon by looking for the MARINE STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL (MSC) logo on the packaging. (Logo: MSC plus a blue checkmark that is in the shape of a fish)
If you are eating at a restaurant.... ask the hard questions before you order Salmon!
enjoy your weekend!
