Global warming makes fish increasingly toxic

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The climate is crazy. Abnormal heat, showers and even abnormal cold are all consequences of global warming. You should not be surprised at the cold – because of the melting glaciers, new cyclones appear in the atmosphere, which bring us bad weather.

The flora and fauna of various regions is also changing. Out of nowhere, unusual animals and microorganisms appear. However, ordinary inhabitants undergo changes.

So, in marine life is becoming more methylmercury . And it is not a matter of mercury emissions at all, which recently, due to environmental control, has just become smaller.

The problem is that due to the warming of the water, the fish eats more and moves more, accumulating more harmful substances in their tissues.

This is especially true for predatory fish, which eats smaller ones. Therefore, doctors advise against eating long-lived predators such as sharks, swordfish, king mackerel and butterfish. It is also worth abandoning cod and tuna.

This is especially important for pregnant women and young children, as the developing nervous system is most vulnerable to mercury toxins.

Nevertheless, recognizing the importance of seafood for health, experts offer options with a proven low mercury content: shrimp, salmon, pollock and catfish.
