Information on the risks of eating Salmon

Eating fish is good for your health right?

We have all heard that eating fish is good for your health and eating salmon comes on the top of the list because of its Omega 3. It is a sad fact that humans are polluting the world including our waters. An illustrative story of this fact I heard quite some years ago.

People were getting seriously sick so an investigation was started to find the why of this. It happened that these people were eating chicken a lot, chicken which came from the same source. These chicken were fed a compound made from fishmeal. On further investigation, it came to light that these fish were swimming in polluted water and who had polluted that water? Here the circle closes, all the bad comes back to us one way or the other.



Puget Sound in Seattle

Coming back to salmon some disturbing news appeared in The  Alternative Daily recently.  Tanya Mead says that salmon from  Puget Sound in Seattle is not appropriate for consumption.  Why is this? The answer is more than alarming. Scientists have found that this fish is heavily contaminated with cocaine, nicotine, Valium, and fungicides just to name a few. It seems that up to 81 drugs were found in this salmon which is wild-caught.

One has not yet found the cause for this negative phenomenon. Perhaps it is leaking from septic tanks or the wastewater treatment systems are not functioning as good as they should therefore not filtering out these harmful contaminants enough.

Obviously, this situation is not only harmful to the people who eat these salmon but also to the fish population as well. What influence it will have on future fish generations one can only speculate upon but for sure it will have a negative effect on the species.

Tapeworm in salmon

From The Alternative Daily comes more disturbing news in a new article on salmon by Katherine Marko.  A certain type of tapeworm has infected the North American salmon. Before this worm could only be found in Asian fish.

In 1986 the Japanese tapeworm was discovered and following reports found it only in fish from Japan, South Korea and the Pacific coast of Russia.  In 2013 a study revealed that this worm had found its way to America and was living in the Alaskan salmon. It has now spread to all of the four species along the Pacific coast.

The really bad news is if you are infected you might not have any symptoms. When this tapeworm egg changes into a larva it starts traveling in your body causing all kind of damage like the forming of cysts to be it in your intestines, lungs and other places. Be always careful and do not eat raw or badly cooked fish.


How to get rid of Tapeworm

There are various things you might consider doing to keep this worm at bay.
The use of coconut oil is recommended, apart from all the other health benefits it is antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal. Of course, only use the organic virgin type of coconut oil, some 6 spoons full a day should do the trick. Other than this ginger, papaya, not too ripe and its seeds and of course garlic are all good allies in the fight against this worm.

Update on Salmon

Again it is in the newsletter of NaturalHealth365 that I read some disturbing news. It happened on August 20, 2017, the day before the total eclipse of the sun. On that day, thousands of farm-raised salmon decided they needed a holiday and escaped from their net pen on the fish farm. This fish farm is located on the coast of Cypress Island in the San Juan Islands.  In its net pen hundred of thousands of salmon live together. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) have estimated between 4000 to 5000 fish escaped.  Accidental release of Salmon.

Many people are concerned about this happening. It could be that the farm-raised fish will compete for food with the wild salmon. What could also happen is that this escapee could pass on diseases. Then one should also take in consideration that farm bred fish contain toxins like PCBs and dioxins, these toxins being very dangerous to humans, especially to the elder and small children or in case you have a weak immune system.



Salmon is good for your Health

What is the best Salmon to buy?

When you go shopping for your salmon the best one to buy is the wild Pacific salmon. If you are not sure best ask in the shop if the fish is labeled as wild caught. Like that, you have the health benefits of eating this fish and minimize the intake of any harmful toxins

    Good morning William,

    The problem is that our governments are making the rules and regulations and often it is not for the benefit of the people but in benefit of harmful companies who earn money at the cost of our health. Depending who is ruling it can be for.better or for worse, look what is happening with EPA lately.
    We the people can only protest and then choose something else to eat. Also, each person has some responsibility, if we would have a healthier lifestyle there would be fewer drugs floating in the water.

Thank you for sharing this information. I have heard that today’s salmon wasn’t good for consumption because of what the farms feed them, but I hadn’t heard about farm raised fish escaping into the ocean. Is there no tracking system for fish like there is for cows? How are they regulated now and what kind of inspections are done on these fish-farming facilities?

Wow… Salmon on drugs… the idea is just scary! Poor fish! Humans should be ashamed of themselves. They are supposed to take care of this planet, but instead they are only destroying it. 

And, the idea of a tape worm inside me, without knowing about it, is enough to put me off salmon for life.

    Good evening,

    Yes, the idea of having a tapeworm as a quest is far from pleasant. To never eat salmon again would be a shame just be careful when you buy it and know from where it comes.

Thank you for this great information.Salmon seem to be a great fish and for sure I like eating fish.Environment is at risk these days and if the world can’t stand and look for the way to protect it against pollution which is the cause of environment destruction ,we will all suffer from that.

It is very important to me to get such information.

    Good Morning Julienne,

    Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you have downloaded your free PDF?

    I think it is quite crazy that we, with our actions, cause all these problems. Health is so important so the best thing one can do is being informed and eat natural things. 

    If we all do our bit to keep the environment clean it will make a difference.

Wow, friend,

I was just shocked reading this article, where is this world heading toward? I mean our own activities are gradually killing us slowly without our notice. I never thought eating Salmon could also be a problem. But now this is what we are experiencing in this dark world.

I just wonder how these fishes got contaminated with all these toxic chemicals. It means industries that are producing these drugs should be under strict regulation to ensure they don’t keep contaminating our fish with these chemicals. And what a surprise to hear that a fish has been infected with Tape Worm. Today is the first time I’m hearing this. This is very serious!

Now that you have alerted me, I will be extra careful when buying any fish out  there and even how to cook it properly to make sure it is safe for eating.

Thanks so much for sharing this useful article.

    Good Morning Stephen,

    I agree with you, we live in a dark world, ruled by money and it is our fault. We do not live in harmony with nature anymore and that has serious consequences for all. I wish that people would wake up to the fact that with our actions we are polluting the environment where we live.

    Lets face it. If people, in general, would be more healthy they would take less medicine  so it would not end up in the water.

    Be informed about what is happening in our world. Try to pollute as little as possible and stay as healthy as possible. I am trying my best.

    Regards, Taetske

this is quite informative,  and on the other hand it is disturbing as well.  seeing that the salmon forms a good source of nutrition and protein and the contermination will cut off this source.  

A big question to ask is what could be done to eradicate conterminated fish from the sea?  Are there remedies?? What is the way forward for those who might have consume this fish within the period of discovery of the contermination??

    Good Morning Olonisakin.

    Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you have downloaded your free PDF?

    If we, humans, would live a life more in tune with nature a lot of problems could be solved. Eating natural foods would save on chemicals etc. The soil would not get polluted. Our health would be a lot better so we would need less medicine. Factories would not pollute water. All these things are related with each other and as a total pollute our environment and all the living things, ourselves included. 

    We always say we are the most intelligent of all living species, sadly we are the ones that do most of the stupid and harmful things to our living space.

    You ask what to do if you have eaten bad fish. I would think the best you can do is a fasting plus detox. You must give your body the chance to heal itself, something which it is very capable of doing.

    Regards, Taetske
