  • A lot of people mistakenly think that eating fish is healthy. Suzanne Frazer will talk about why fish is not a healthy food and why she personally does not eat fish. Learn about the chemicals manufactured into everyday plastic items, how plastic gets more toxic in the ocean from the accumulation of POPs (persistent organic pollutants) and the implications for seafood eaters of an ocean of plastic.
    Find out how our everyday choices including what we eat and buy can make a difference in protecting our health, the environment and marine life. Come and be inspired and empowered with knowledge to make simple, easy changes to your lifestyle to protect your long term health and that of our ocean planet.

    Human beings are really short sighted dumb creatures. We are doing to the sea animals what we did to our land animals. The ocean is not ours to " harvest" It didn't evolve to be our supermarket. As long as we have this arrogant prick mentality we are doomed. Not a matter of if we go extinct, its when.

    This is a catastrophe. I think it's enough to trigger a mass ocean-extinction event on par with the Permian-Triassic extinction, a.k.a., The Great Dying.

    I heard micro plastics can be found in tap water and maybe even more micro plastics in bottled water which are in those plastic bottles. Seafood also have radioactive particles that can cause cancer. The radioactive particles are from the nuclear weapons testing, yearly radiation releases from nuclear power plants when they have to change the radioactive rods, and nuclear plant accidents like fukushima japan which is still releasing radiation into the pacific ocean every day. I heard there are some bacteria that can eat plastic.

    The main selling point of small fish like anchovies and sardines are epa/dha omega 3. I heard scientists are creating gmo crops that will have epa/dha omega 3 so that vegans will not need to use algae epa/dha omega 3 supplements. For people concerned about zinc deficiency, could eat some mussel, clam, oyster which are usually farmed these days since wild seafood has been pretty much all wiped out already from overfishing, overpopulation of people and global warming. Most people are able to convert ala omega 3 to epa/dha omega 3 like what sheep are doing. Good source of ala omega 3 is flax powder which can be stored in the freezer.
