Most likely, you are consuming a crappy diet. We know, lots of people are trying to eat more vegetables — but if those veggies are imported from places like China, chances are they’ve been fertilized with untreated human or animal waste. Or maybe even poultry poo: Chicken “[feces] is the primary nutrient for growing the tilapia [in China],” explains one microbiologist. In other words, the fish are literally eating shit and dying. Kind of makes paying $15 a filet for wild salmon seem a little more reasonable. [Vancouver Sun]
