More Proof That Everything Will Kill You

I love fish. It’s so tasty and so good for you, chock full of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. I’ve been trying to incorporate more fish in my diet as a way of lowering my cholesterol. But it’s so hard to do the right thing, what with warnings about overfishing and calls to avoid eating certain types of fish, such as Chilean seabass.

Then there’s the deal about toxic levels of mercury in fish, which according to an expose by the Chicago Tribune, is much worse than we’ve been led to believe.

You can’t win for losin’.

  1. Enjoy some salmon and tuna 2 to 3 times a week.
    You’ll enjoy the health benefits, as well, as the ymminess.
    And that won’t amount to enough mercury to do any harm.

  2. Other than catfish–fish isn’t readily available here– they use another alternative to bodily destruction–fat in every food–even add bacon drippings to their veggies. Stick with the fish–it doesn’t turn you into a walking dumpling.

  3. An added note…As I posted the last comment I was eating a bagel covered with cream cheese and salmon.
    I could go either way!

  4. Yeah, I figure everything in moderation.
    It just sucks that we’ve screwed up our environment (in this case, the oceans) so badly that something that should be so good for us now has its benefit effectively cancelled out.
