Tell me first ... :cry:

Ok, I will try. When humans dump garbage, poisons, in the environment, the soil , the ocean, it is consumed, absorbed by fish. The bigger, older, fish retain the most PCB's. But, because of the trickle down effect, bottom feeders like catfish and shellfish contain dangerous levels too. Your safest fish are wild fresh water fish that are under 13 inches long. There are suggested limits of which wish and how often you should consume them. PCB's cause cancers and other major health problems.

Got it! I knew about Mercury, but not PCB's, thanks.

Yes, you have to strike a balance to get your Omega-3's but not overload on PCB's and mercury. My instructions allow me two servings a week. You will notice a vast difference in the rice of the safe fish and the contaminated fish.

:wow:

I really like popcorn too. Had some fresh popped on the stove for lunch. Little sprinkle of sea salt and I'm good.

  • PCBs are a large group of related industrial chemicals.
    • PCBs are oily liquids or solids and are clear or light yellow
      in color.
    • They have no smell or taste.
  • PCBs are common contaminants in fish in many parts of the world.
  • If PCBs levels in fish are high enough, they may pose a health threat to people
    that eat fish often.
Liberty, (hello, nice to meet you) are there any fish now absent of PCBs? Commercial fish, that is.

Glad to meet you, NNQueen!

Hmmm.... I guess it is possible. But, what we do have is information on accepted amounts of each kind of fish, that are safe to eat. I will link you up to a thread I did trying to clarify the info. But, note, only the last post gives the warning about shellfish that I know and live by. Like I said on the thread, I don't know why the published information suggests that bottom feeders are safe. I am told to never eat shellfish, or bottom feeders. Now, on social occasions, I cheat and have a lobster tail. (But, it seems obvious to me that bottom feeders eat the crap of all the other fish so they would be heavily contaminated)

My information tells me that the safest fish is wild, fresh caught, fish that is under 13 inches. Never eat farm raised fish, yuck! To get enough omega 3's, but not too much PCB's or mercury, I can have these fish twice a week, to be safe. I don't eat meat or poultry. See this thread, and let me know if you want more info....

I could only imagine how "un-contacted" civilizations would react to a box that turns this...

It reminds me of one of the many legends of why AAs eat black-eyed peas for good luck on New Years. Some say it is because on the ships from Africa to the Americas, the slaves were given hard, dried, black-eyed peas to eat, and yet they survived the journey.
