This new Asian fish is sold in supermarkets as BASA fillet at very cheap price, it’s a fish-intensive / industrial crop in Vietnam, it is invading the market due to its price.
Here’s what you need to know about pangasius (basa) cultivate the Mekong (Vietnam) river and is one of the most polluted rivers in the world so the pangas (based) are infected with high levels of poisons and bacteria (arsenic from industrial waste, toxic and dangerous products, the growing industrial sector), contaminant metals, polychlorinated phenols (PCBs) and DDT and its (DDTs), chlorate, related compounds (CHLS) hexaclorociloxano isomers (HCH) and hexachlorobenzene (HCB).
In the United States, they have banned their import, due to the presence of pollutants and suspicion that may contain antibiotics.
There is nothing natural in pangas (based) are fed dead fish, remains of bones and a flour South America, cassava and waste soybean and grain obviously this kind of unhealthy diet you have nothing to do with food in a natural environment.
It is the closest thing to food mad cow (cows that were fed cows, remember?).
Feeding the pangas (basa) is completely out of any legal regulation. Pangasius (basa) grows four times faster than in nature. They are also injected with (PEE), some scientists discovered that if injected females pangasius (basa) with the female hormones derived from dehydrated urine of pregnant women, the panga female (based) produce their eggs very quickly and in large quantities This does not happen in a natural environment (a panga and starts to produce 500,000 eggs at one time).
They are basically fish with injectable hormones (produced by a Chinese pharmaceutical company) to accelerate growth and reproduction.
By buying pangas (Basa), we are working with giant corporations and unscrupulous speculators, who do not care about the health and welfare of human beings. This trade is being accepted by supermarkets that sell to the general public, knowing they are selling contaminated products.
The fact is that pollutes or not, the panga also suffer nutritional deficiencies, these fish does not contain significant amounts Omega 3 oils and other essential nutrients that are present in fish traditionally marketed. At the end as is “friendly” to the palate (not your taste, you do not have), but rather by their lack of bones and skin and “comfort” for cooking and consumption, it is becoming the star of the fish market, but better that we continue with the known.
CHECK THE ORIGIN OF FISH AND FISH ASIAN NEVER BUY ANYTHING for very cheap.
