after watching this, would you still eat salmon?

let's face it, as much as i like eating salmon, i stopped more than 2 years ago when i learned that almost all the salmon in the market are farmed salmons. also, as farmed salmons are fed "feeds" rather than their natural diet, their flesh doesn't turn out the appetising "salmon hue" which we are familiar with. instead, it turns out grey! therefore it has to be artificially dyed to bring back the "salmon hue".

read more about farmed salmons here.

of course, it is not sustainable if everyone wants to eat only wild salmon.

but if you watch this documentary, you may even think again about eating salmon. i know it's more than an hour but this is such a powerful documentary, watching and learning from it, we could be empowered to take action to protect ourselves rather than just being the guinea pig here.

what am i talking about? farmed salmons are full of dangerous viruses. in the wild, sick animals are taken care off by their predators. in the farms, if they survive long enough, they end up on your table.

next time you eat that nice salmon sushi, think of all the stuffs you are ingesting...
