US Seafood Consumption Is Up, but Many Are Still Making Unhealthy Purchasing Choices

By Dr. Mercola

According to the latest report1 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Americans increased their seafood consumption by nearly 1 pound per person in 2015, to an average of 15.5 pounds per year, or just over 4.75 ounces per week.

That’s the largest increase in seafood consumption in two decades. While this is good news, we still fall short of dietary recommendations, which call for 8 ounces of seafood per week.

Shrimp, salmon and tuna top the most-consumed list of seafood. Unfortunately, both shrimp and tuna have serious drawbacks.

On the upside, salmon, as long as it’s wild caught in Alaska is a great choice, and one-third of the increase was in fact attributed to people buying more canned Alaskan salmon. As reported by NPR:2

   “That increase may stem from The Emergency Food Assistance Program at the USDA, which purchased more than $40 million in surplus canned Alaskan salmon in 2014 and 2015 and distributed it to food banks across the country.”

Eat More Seafood, but Be Mindful of Your Choices

As noted by NPR, warnings about sustainability and toxicity led many Americans to shy away from seafood over the past couple of decades. Indeed, it can be tricky to gain clarity about what’s healthy and what’s not. There are plenty of pitfalls and hazards these days.

Cold-water fatty fish is a great source of vitally important fats — both saturated and omega-3s — but the benefits of eating fish can easily be negated by selecting varieties that tend to be highly contaminated with mercury. Surprisingly, farmed fish have been shown to be even more toxic than wild fish.

There’s also the issue of food fraud. So how do you make sense of it all? I’ll do my best to break it down for you in this article.
The Case Against Shrimp

As noted in Larry Olmsted’s book, “Real Food/Fake Food,” the seafood industry struggles with quite a few problems. A majority of his book focuses on food fraud, but he also covers a number of other issues, including environmental sustainability.

Most shrimp sold in the U.S. are raised in shrimp farms in Southeast Asia. Mangroves — which are nature’s filtration system and defense against tsunamis — are cut down to house these farms. Toxic waste and chemicals from these farms also flow into waterways and destroy the ecosystem.

In addition to that, there’s well-documented use of slave labor in the shrimp farming industry. As noted by Olmsted, “It’s kind of a triple whammy. Bad for us, bad for the world, bad for the people involved — and the shrimp frankly doesn’t taste very good.”

In 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had a record number of import refusals for shrimp. This is when shrimp is tested and found to contain unacceptable contaminants, such as banned antibiotics or elevated levels of toxins.

Some of the antibiotics used in shrimp farming are not allowed in American food production because they’re carcinogenic. Olmsted recommends avoiding shrimp in restaurants unless you’re absolutely convinced the shrimp were caught in the Gulf of Mexico.

However, there’s still the challenge of potential contamination from the oil spill and subsequent use of corexit, a chemical that is more toxic than the oil itself. It’s unclear how seafood in the Gulf of Mexico has been affected by that environmental catastrophe.

Startup Serves Up Chicken Produced From Cells in Lab
‘Clean meat’ developers say it avoids towering costs of feeding, caring for livestock; Tyson Foods takes note

A Bay Area food-technology startup says it has created the world’s first chicken strips grown from self-reproducing cells without so much as ruffling a feather.

And the product pretty much tastes like chicken, according to people who were offered samples Tuesday in San Francisco, before Memphis Meats Inc.’s formal unveiling on Wednesday.

Scientists, startups and animal-welfare activists believe the new product could help to revolutionize the roughly $200 billion U.S. meat industry. Their goal: Replace billions of cattle, hogs and chickens with animal meat they say can be grown more efficiently and humanely in stainless-steel bioreactor tanks.

Gluten-free foods found saturated with glyphosate weed killer: Video documentary reveals shocking details that may make you question gluten-free

(Natural News) In recent laboratory tests, many gluten-free foods were found to containing alarmingly high levels of glyphosate weed killer, a chemical described as a “probable carcinogen” by a scientific subgroup of the World Health Organization.

Gluten-free foods are widely consumed by people who aren’t even gluten sensitive in the first place. As I explain in the eye-opening mini-documentary video below, many people mistakenly believe they have a “gluten insensitivity” when, in reality, they are experiencing the toxic effects of glyphosate in wheat products.

Even worse, most gluten-free foods that are labeled “gluten-free” are heavily processed, non-organic junk foods that tend to lack the very kinds of natural fresh plant fibers that promote healthy digestion and elimination. Many foods labeled “gluten-free” are loaded with crazy levels of processed sugars and refined carbohydrates, too.

Don’t fall for the myth that “gluten-free” automatically means clean and healthy. If it’s not organic, it’s probably laced with pesticides and herbicides. If you do buy gluten-free foods, always buy organic.

Brand name processed foods found laced with glyphosate weed killer… Cheerios, Wheaties and more

Monday, March 06, 2017 by: Amy Goodrich

Natural News) Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and many other commercially available weed killers. Due to the widespread adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops, glyphosate has become the most commonly used weed killer in the conventional farming industry. GM glyphosate-resistant crops are now grown on more than 175 million acres in the United States and more than 440 million acres worldwide. Each year, more than 300 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicides are sprayed on American food crops, lawns, and gardens.

Recently, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen.” As more health risks associated with glyphosate exposure start to emerge, the European Union remains uncertain whether it will renew its authorization of glyphosate in commercial products in Europe.

Furthermore, recent safety testing has shown that glyphosate residues can cause harm to human health, even at ultra-low levels. While the evidence is clear, the U.S. authorities, unfortunately, keep allowing this dangerous toxin to end up in our food chain at worrying levels. Safety testing of glyphosate residues in Roundup-sprayed crops is often ignored and unreliable.

While Monsanto has continuously claimed that Roundup is harmless to our health, multiple studies are painting a different picture. Regular exposure to glyphosate has been linked to chronic conditions such as autism, Crohn’s disease, allergies, depression, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and infertility. (RELATED: Stay informed about more glyphosate news at Glyphosate.news.)
Glyphosate found in many processed foods

Anresco Laboratories in San Francisco, an FDA-registered food safety lab, recently conducted their own research to see whether glyphosate can be found in commonly consumed processed foods. And their tests revealed the worst. Previous research has shown that glyphosate or glyphosate residues of only 0.05 parts per billion (ppb) can cause damage to at least 4,000 genes, while 10 ppb may cause serious health effects, such as kidney and liver damage. Anresco’s results, however, indicated that some of the tested foods had up to 1,000 times that amount.

The testing and analysis were requested by Food Democracy Now! and The Detox Project, who bundled the results in a 29-page report called “Glyphosate: UNSAFE ON ANY PLATE.” According to the report, U.S. regulators currently allow a very high level of daily glyphosate residues in our food. The authors hope their report can serve as a strong wake-up call for all Americans to reconsider their consumption of some of their favorite processed foods.

Furthermore, Food Democracy Now! has called for a federal investigation into the damaging effects of glyphosate and the relationships between the industry and the regulators that allow these toxins to end up in our food chain.

Below you’ll find an overview of common brand names and the amount of glyphosate that was found in some of their products, with General Mills Cheerios topping the list with an astonishing 1,125.3 ppb.
