Fish has always been touted as a healthy food, but when it comes to today’s farmed salmon, experts say that description couldn’t be further from the truth.
During the making of the documentary, “Fillet-Oh-Fish” by director Nicolas Daniels, an investigation among the Norwegian fjords that contain salmon farms found a layer of waste about 15 meters high, consisting of bacteria, drugs, and pesticides. And with the sea farms being situated in open water, it’s impossible to contain the pollution.
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, “Today’s fisheries are faced with a range of severe problems, from overfishing to chemical pollution and genetic mutation from toxic exposures.”
Farmed salmon has been proven to be five times more toxic than any other food product tested. In fact, Norwegian environmental activist Kurt Oddekalv claims that today’s farmed salmon is one of the most toxic foods in the world, adding that the farming of salmon is “a disaster both for the environment and for human health.”
