Wild salmon, when compared to farmed salmon, contains significantly fewer dangerous toxins such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Wild salmon is also nutritionally superior. It contains more calcium, potassium, and iron (three nutrients Americans tend to fall short on) while having only half the total fat and a third fewer calories than farmed salmon.
Organic Dairy Products
Research shows that the fatty tissues of animals accumulate environmental toxins such as dioxins. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), these toxins increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and diseases of the reproductive system. Although you can’t avoid these pollutants altogether since they are in the soil, water, and air, you can greatly cut your exposure to them by forking over a little extra cash for organic dairy products.
