Salmon from Norway - world’s most toxic food
« on: January 01, 2020, 11:35:58 am »
I’m not sure if you buy this in Korea. It’s available in mainland China and also here in Taiwan. I always had imagined myself as eating free salmon in the pure waters of Norway. Apparently Scottish salmon and “Atlantic salmon” are just as bad.

I thought this was common knowledge.

Any type of pinkish/yellowish/peachy salmon meat (the kind you see in EVERY supermarket) is full of fat that stores all the gunk hormones, antibiotics and toxins fed to the salmon in fish farms.

Healthy salmon meat should be deep red.

"From The Norway" was pretty much a no-brainer.

Without fail, every thread started by Thomas Mc is a fake news sh*t post. And this is no exception. World's most toxic food? What a joke.

"Tests by the VKM show that you can eat more than a kilo of farmed salmon a week without risk"

But are the Norwegian men eating it :wink: ? I mean it’s 2 million fish on their shores and it’s exported all over the world

Looks like LI may have investments in salmon farming industry or something as I have no idea why this would be labelled “fake news”

antibiotics are used, and you could say it’s intense like most farming however what they are putting in the feed is toxic. And the toxicity increases as you go up the food chain.

Re: food chain concentrated toxicity

This isn’t an issue for short lived farmed fish eating food with controlled ingredients.

Large, old wild fish have far higher heavy metal concentration. High food-chain fish are particularly impacted because they are eating nth degree predators.

I could refute the other points, but I can’t be arsed at this time.

Here's  a tip, Thomas Mc: that which you hear on a single non-mainstream low budget documentary shouldn't be taken as gospel truth- especially if it hasn't been corroborated by another reputable source.

What the salmon were fed in the past- years ago- wasn't as bad as portrayed and has been changed anyways. The toxin levels, while low, became even lower.

Countries all over the world wouldn't be importing Norwegian salmon if it were dangerous. They're not stupid. They know how to run tests to gauge its safety.

What I have read is that salmon farming is very polluting, not polluted. It is prawns from Asia however, which are very toxic because they are farmed in filthy basins instead of the 'clean' seas of Norway.

They also have little omega-3 values because they are fed soya and waste products instead of Atlantic shrimp. I try to avoid it.

I grew up eating salmon on Vancouver Island. It was free. We'd go fishing and catch a bunch, my dad built a smoke shed out back to preserve the ones we didn't eat fresh.

My father thought fish "farms" were not farms but prisons and cesspools of disease.

I only ate canned salmon once. I felt like a Parisian drinking box wine.

 ;D Well, it's Norway after all, where prisoners are given keys to their own mountain chalets while cycling in and out of town for work and groceries.

Yeah stay away from all the salmon in the marts here, Emart home plus etc.

I buy from coupang, it is shipped frozen solid salmon from US/Canada.

My first thought was I’d love to eat wild salmon however Wild salmon is a luxury product and none of us should be eating it with stocks so fragile.

Basically in Scotland, Ireland and maybe some parts of Canada salmon is going extinct.

I wish they would label it as farmed or wild caught and that it would be law for all seafood.  Either that or require much larger cages for farmed fish and move them periodically or something and away from shore.    Not sure that would help the industry or not.
