Caveat Emptor. Eating Fish and American Business.

Yesterday, the entry on Roland’s Ramblings was about eating meat and its possible effect of increasing the risk of premature death in humans.

Well, many, many people advocate the health benefits of human consumption of fish, with its Omega-3 and all that good stuff.

For quite some time, somewhat scandalous at times, there has been the concern about mercury poisoning in the fish we consume. Is it good for you to eat fish or not? Read Fish: Friend or Foe from The Nutrition Source of the Harvard School of Public Health.

BUT, what about that fish you eat in an American restaurant or buy at the local grocery store or from the fish market here in the United States of America.  Is it good for you or not?

There is a fishing expedition underway, even as I compose this blog entry. The latest fish controversy involves fraudulent business practices by Americans in the enterprises of selling both unprepared and prepared fish. All I will write about that here is: “Caveat Emptor.”

You can read about the “smell fishy” aspects of the American seafood industry in the Roland Hansen Commentary Caveat Emptor: Something Smells Fishy In America.
