  1. Consumption of fish : benefits and perceived risk.

    Article - En anglais

    Fish, a useful of protein, may be polluted by microbes, natural toxins, and/or synthetic chemicals.

    However, based on a review of the U.S. General Accounting Office, « There does not appear to be a compelling case to implement a mandatory comprehensive federal seafood inspection program ».

    Although earlier studies showed higher body burdens of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in populations who conssumed a lot of fish from polluted waterways, a recent study refutes these observations.
