You might have heard a lot from your doctors and people, ‘Eat less red meat and more fish’, but is eating farmed fish safe? Is wild fish healthier than farmed fish?

Obviously, some commercial fish is actually worse than red meat. When we were younger the fish that we ate were always wild caught from ocean or lakes, but now the most of the fish in grocery stores and restaurants are from fish farm. Once I saw on youtube how salmon are raised from fish farm and it almost made me puke. The environment was dirty and packed with so many fish, which means they need to be treated with antibiotics and fungicides.

My fish of choice always would be from natural habitat, but unfortunately wild-caught doesn’t always mean it’s good as well. Due to pollutions and  radioactive contamination many of wild fish now contain high levels of mercury and other toxins.

I found a website for info. Go HERE and see what is the best choice for fish.

My mango got ripened more than I wanted and got mushy but it still tasted good.

Enjoy!
