“My blanket recommendation is do not eat seafood.”
Thoughts? I was thinking about how crazy it is that I'm eating a dead fish that was swimming around in who knows what. Maybe it's time to cut out fish?
I've been trying a bit more to think about the things I put in my body, at my work everyone smokes and it has been effecting my health from breathing in second hand smoke. Since my job is shutdown atm my cough is gone, my breathing has improved a bit. Now to take that a step further and think about my diet!
Cutting out sugars etc etc. Has anyone cut out fish from their diet? Lately at the store I can get a box of fish for $8 so it's fairly cheap and goes a long way.
One industrial toxin that commonly pollutes oceans is mercury, which is either directly deposited through industrial runoff or rains down into waters after being released as an emission.
All of these sources of waste lead to toxicity in oceans and directly affects marine life. Globally, there are around 500 marine dead zones because pollution is so extreme.
For all the areas that aren’t dead zones, pollution still seeps into sea creatures and works its way through the marine food chain. And this pollution, ultimately, makes it to supermarkets and restaurants where it’s sold to humans.

While parasites are definitely a cause for concern, toxic substances from human pollution are a more persistent threat.
