(N.Morgan) Everyone likes Tilapia, especially at this time of year during Lint. This fish is inexpensive and the filets sold do not have bones, skin, and that fishy taste. It is also easy to prepare. As great as it sounds, sadly there is a down side to this fish.
Turns out that tilapia may be even more disastrous for your health than some of the notorious meat, including pork and beef.
The tilapia we buy for consumption is a cultivated fish, and no supermarket or a restaurant has wild tilapia on its menu.
The major problem with the tilapia that comes from the stores is that it comes from factory farms, farms where tilapia is fed an unnatural, unhealthy diet that includes soy pellets and GMO corn instead of the delicious algae and plants it would eat in the wild.
Why can’t you eat farm-raised Tilapia?
Farm-raised tilapia has been proven to cause issues in the body including joint inflammations, asthma, coronary disease, and other chronic health issues.
However, farmed fish has ten times the normal quantities of carcinogenic or cancer causing agents compared to the wild fish.
Tilapia is one of those farmed fish types.
Farmed fish also contain more pesticides, usually used for treating the fish for infections.
These pesticides often remain in their bodies even after harvesting.
Another issue associated with the farm-raised fish is the high level of Dioxin in them. This substance is lethal, and when you take it into your system, it may remain there up to a decade. it was discovered that farmed fish contain 11 times more dioxin than wild fish.
Furthermore, the farm-raised tilapia packs less solid supplements compared to the wild tilapia. It also has lower levels of protein and higher levels of omega 6 unsaturated fats compared to omega 3 ones. The imbalance of omega 3 and omega 6 has adverse impacts on our bodies.
We must say that one of the major ingredients of the ranch fish food is chicken poop. So what do you think, do you really want that on your menu? Because if you are buying and eating the tilapia available from the grocery store, you basically have that as the entree on your plate.
