Now that Monsanto has genetically engineered crops to stand up to heavy doses of the chemical, it’s being sprayed on more food crops than ever. It is then taken up into the plants that we eat – as do the farm animals that we often end up eating as well. According to a study by Norwegian scientists, American soy crops contain excessive glyphosate levels inside the food crop. Dozens more breakfast foods test positive for trace amounts of weed killer, report says.

Rich in omega-3 fats and one of the best dietary sources of vitamin D,1 eating fatty fish has been associated with lower rates of depression, asthma, cognitive decline, heart disease and improved quality of sleep. However, as waterways are becoming increasingly polluted with pharmaceutical and toxic waste, fish are also contaminated. Wastewater treatment plants have not been designed to remove pollutants in the water from personal care products or pharmaceutical waste products.

Although Americans are finding new ways to consume seafood, from tacos to salmon pizza, consumption is still below recommended amounts.4 The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend a person eating 2,000 calories per day should eat approximately 8 ounces of seafood per week.

Unfortunately, as the levels of pollution in the oceans have increased, so have the toxins you consume. If you aren’t choosy about where your fish is harvested, the pollutants in the fish may outweigh the benefits of the healthy fats. In the 1980s the popularity of orange roughy exploded and led to driving it almost to extinction. Raising fish in a confined area results in the same kind of waste pollution problems as land-based factory animal farms struggle with.

Dangers of Hidden Poisons in Your Food

Mercola You may read food labels and make an effort to avoid risky food additives and artificial ingredients in the food you eat, but some of the most damaging poisons in your food are found nowhere on a label. Drug residues, pesticides, industrial chemicals and other environmental contaminants pose a serious risk in foods like meat and poultry. To protect U.S. consumers from such hazards, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers the National Residue Program (NRP). The NRP, via FSIS inspectors, is responsible for testing food samples for the presence of approved and unapproved veterinary drugs, pesticides, and environmental contaminants.
