Farm Fish Facts
The problem with eating fish is that many of the fish we consume are farmed. Farmed fish are grown in large tanks and fed diets full of grain designed to fatten them up very quickly. When fish are fed grain, they consume large amounts of a fatty acid is called omega-6.
While this fatty acid is important for our bodies, in large amounts it can be dangerous. It can cause the beginning of inflammatory enzymes in the body. Farm raised fish, therefore are actually pro-inflammatory!
Inflammation is behind many human diseases including heart disease and cancer. However, excessive inflammation is all too common. Those that suffer from allergies, asthma, and arthritis, are already aware of the pleasantries of excessive inflammation. From premature wrinkles, to heart disease, inflammation can affect everything.
Farm-raised fish is highly inflammatory (i.e. causes inflammation). In fact, you are better off avoiding farmed fish altogether. Farm-raised salmon are fed cereal grains, soy and corn, poultry litter and chicken feathers. Chicken feathers. Yuck!
So then, should we eat wild fish? Let’s get the facts. Wild fish are mercury-filled time bombs, according to a parade of reports from government agencies and environmental groups.
Mercury is known to affect the migration of brain cells in fetuses and might prevent signal transmission pathways from developing properly. The researchers also fear damage to the autonomic nervous system, which tells blood vessels when to contract or relax and the heart how fast to beat.
The FDA says pregnant women, women who might become pregnant and young children shouldn’t eat fish with high levels of mercury — shark, swordfish, king mackerel or tilefish — at all.
There have been studies showing that consumption of large amounts of high-mercury fish can cause headaches and stomach pains.
Some people like to call themselves vegetarians because it sounds virtuous or something, but they don’t really want to give up all meat, so they pretend that fish isn’t meat.
The Human body is to be Protected, God is very clear in 1 Cor. 3:16
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.
“And I will turn against anyone, whether an Israelite or a foreigner living among you who eats or drinks blood in any form. I will cut off such a person from the community for the life of any creature is in its blood. I have given you the blood so you can make atonement for your sins. It is the blood, representing life, that brings you atonement.”
“It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.”
“Moreover, ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings. Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.” Leviticus 7:26
