Seafood Survival Guide: Toxicity and Sustainability
Bottom line: You need to eat seafood for omega-3 and its other health benefits, but with minimal impact on your health. The question is what kind should you be eating? It’s not enough to simply “eat wild” as most Paleo sites advise.
Yes, most seafood is contaminated, but I don’t want you to avoid seafood. This is a foolish health strategy. Eating fish and seafood protects you not only from diseases like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc, but from all causes of death, including cancer. Fish supplies high protein, low total fat, while high in omega-3. Fish is highly contaminated today, but we need the omega-3 in our diets morethan we need to avoid fish.
It was important for me to give you a definitive seafood guide to help you achieve optimum health while also helping the planet sustain its fish populations. This guide is also in my soon-to-be-released book, The Modern Paleo Survival Guide.
