Possible Side Effects

As waters in which fish are caught are often polluted, eating large amounts of wild caught fish may come with a higher risk of cancer.

Notes icon


  • While cooking fish, try to avoid frying, as it may reduce omega-3 acids.
  • Avoid large predatory fish like swordfish, mackerel and shark, as they have higher levels of mercury contamination
  • Choose smaller species like sardines, anchovies, salmon, Atlantic mackerel, herring and sole
  • Avoid seafood from China, as their waters are highly polluted
