Mercury Rising In Fish

Avoid Fish Or Not?

That seems to be the question. Eating fish and seafood in general is becoming a health risk. Yes, we need to clean up our planet and deal with pollution, food packaging and overpopulation but before we get there, you need to know the dangers. For example foods like tuna and swordfish and other popular seafood often carry high very levels of mercury.

So what are we to do? Good question. Consider what we are all doing every day to increase waste. Consider your body and how to best protect it. Lots of concerns. No easy answers. All the best #canada🍁

Here is a great list we found at the link at the bottom of this post. Eat wisely and let’s all work together to save our amazing planet (and ourselves).
