    Google some more and find the truth.

    Do you honestly believe that governments all over the world are allowing a toxic food to come into the country?
    You'd think if it was toxic, multiple governments would have banned these things already.

    Your money, your choice.
    But to imply & believe that the world trade in Salmon is toxic is folly.

    You mean like Cigarettes?

    Edit - i agree with you on the food front, just being facetious because that argument if flawed.

    Not like cigarettes since there are cigarette bans, warnings and education programmes everywhere.
    Same for Alcohol.

    But back to Salmon : there are no credible studies showing farmed fish is harmful in any way but there are a lot of scaremongering out there from crank and anti-science websites.

    May be we should be talking about salmon who have had their measles shots and been brought up in caffeine laced ponds while listening to heavy metal during their formative years?

    not salmon, but chemical-laden fish is sold in Hong Kong HKBU reported a few days ago, every year it seems seafood with malachite green is identified. Government agencies don't test every fish, they test a sample - yet seafood with malachite green still reaches the Hong Kong shops.

    malachite green is banned all over the place, for a good reason.
    And some people smuggle it - it happens.

    That is very different than salmon, not banned, but vilified by a whole bunch of crank websites

    *shrug*
    "can lead to...." and "Additional research is necessary..." is far from "harmful" and very far from "its toxic, dont eat it" kind of BS being spread around....
