We all know that fish is a source of easily digestible protein, a source of trace elements and vitamins, as well as valuable fat consisting of polyunsaturated fatty acids – Omega 3 and Omega 6, which have a positive effect on the organs of the cardiovascular system and are fully absorbed by the body. But, strange as it may seem, not all fish is healthy, and some can be very harmful.

The FoodOboz editorial team has prepared a list of harmful fish species that are not recommended for frequent consumption.

  1. Royal mackerel
  2. Tuna
  3. Catfish
  4. Taiwanese catfish
  5. Sea bass, oil fish
  6. Mackerel
  7. Bream, perch, crucian carp, carp, carp, pike, silver carp
  8. Cod
  9. Trout, salmon
  10. Bighead
  11. Pangasius, tilapia (tilapia), tilefish
  12. Eel

Let's take a closer look at why this fish is so dangerous:

Firstly, it often contains a lot of mercury, especially tuna, which can lead to nervous system disorders.

Tuna contains small amounts of mercury

It's important to know that the older the fish, the more mercury it contains, and even high-temperature treatment won't help get rid of it.

Secondly, very often fish are raised artificially, and fed with antibiotics to prevent them from getting sick.

With oysters, you also need to be very careful, especially to pay attention to the smell and taste

You need to know that these drugs do not disintegrate during heat treatment. The danger is that when they enter the human body, they cause gradual addiction and resistance to certain types of antibiotics. This means that when a person gets sick and needs treatment with these drugs, they will not help.

Salmon should not be consumed frequently either

The third danger is that often the reservoirs where fish are raised are located near agricultural fields that are treated with pesticides. And unscrupulous farmers dump the residues into the same fish ponds.

It is important to note that these harmful substances are extremely dangerous and can provoke disorders in the nervous system, and kidney function, and lead to a general weakening of the body.

Therefore, before choosing a certain type of fish for dinner, read it in detail and understand whether it is safe for the body.

The choice of fish should be approached with special care
