The best and worst fish to eat

Feb 08, 2021 by

Fish is a healthy, high-protein food, and is known for a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fats that our bodies don’t produce on their own. Omega-3 fatty acids play an essential role in our brain and heart health. Omega-3s have also been shown to decrease inflammation and reduce the risk of heart disease. With so many benefits of eating fish, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends eating fish at least 2 times a week, particularly fatty fish like salmon, lake trout, and sardines, which are the best fish for high levels of omega-3s.

Unfortunately, there are some risks associated with eating fish on a regular basis. Contaminants such as mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) find their way into ground, lake, and ocean water from our household and industrial waste, and then into the fish who live there.

Fish are undeniably a healthy food, but they can have high levels of contaminants, too. So how do you go about choosing what fish to eat? Watch the video below for a great explanation!
