Most likely, you are consuming a crappy diet. We know, lots of people are trying to eat more vegetables but if those veggies are imported from places like China, chances are they've been fertilized with untreated human or animal waste. Or maybe even poultry poo: Chicken "[feces] is the primary nutrient for growing the tilapia [in China]," explains one microbiologist. In other words, the fish are literally eating shit and dying. Kind of makes paying $15 a filet for wild salmon seem a little more reasonable. [Vancouver Sun]
