Have you fallen hook line and sinker for fish? Fresh frozen and canned - collectively, we eat 4 billion pounds of fish each year. Fried, grilled, blackened in sushi, in a fancy restaurant, or in fast food joints. And our kids love their homemade tuna sandwiches and tuna casserole.

In addition to fish, seafood consumption continues to rise. We love it all -shrimp, lobster, scallops, clams, oysters, and crab. What have you heard or read about eating fish? The director of the government’s NOAA Fisheries Service says : seafood is a safe and healthy food choice for all Americans.

According to Dr. Russell Blaylock, the fish and some of then seafood you’re eating may contain high levels of a number of less than healthy compounds. Nasty stuff like mercury, one of the most poisonous metals in existence, PCBs, dioxins, pesticides, and herbicides.

Should you eat seafood for the health benefit’s of the omega-3 oils, or should you avoid it because of the health destroying effects of mercury and other compounds it contains? Dr. Blalock agrees on the importance of omega-3 oils, the healthy oils found in seafood. He’ll tell you that omega-3 oils, the healthy oils found in seafood, has been associated with dramatic reductions in heart related deaths, strokes, cancer and arthritis pain.

According to Dr. Blaylock, you can’t count on government agencies like the FDA, which regulates commercial fishing, and the EPA which regulates sport fishing to protect you because they tread a very thin line trying to protect the public, while at the same time not wanting to destroy the seafood industry.
