( — May 10, 2018) Orlando, FL — Fish and other seafood are generally perceived to be good for health. However, it is important to learn about the contaminants contained in food.

Purdue University experts said that consumers need to get some information before buying seafood. This is to ensure that the benefits of eating such a food outweighs the risks.

According to Charles Santerre, foods and nutrition associate professor, consumption of fish has been known to be beneficial. This is due to the protein and omega-3 fatty acids it contains that promote good health.

However, it is important to remember that fish, such as commercial fish, can be harmful. Consumers, particularly women in their child-bearing years, need to be careful when choosing fish.

Santerre specializes in chemical contaminants in food. It has been identified that king mackerel, shark, swordfish and tile fish have high levels of methylmercury.

Regular consumption of these fish can be detrimental to the nervous system health of an infant or fetus. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) also pose a threat and they can sometimes be found in fish.

Researchers also suggest that some kinds of fish have high levels of brain toxins. Some kinds of seafood with slightly high levels of mercury are cod haddock, mahi-mahi, canned tuna, herring, whitefish and spiny lobster.

Toxins can be found not just in fish, but almost everywhere. This is why it is beneficial to learn where they could potentially come from. There are many studies that found toxin accumulation inside the body leads to the onset of certain diseases and disorders.

Contaminants can disrupt certain processes inside the body, and this can trigger the development of certain symptoms and disorders. It may be difficult to completely avoid exposure to these toxins, but there are measures to cleanse the body from them.

Activated charcoal is an ingredient consumers may use to safely detoxify their bodies. This natural ingredient has been gaining increasing popularity due to its health benefits.

According to some experts, it works by adhering to the toxins and preventing their absorption in the system. Toxins are then flushed from the body and this prevents them from making complications on health.

There are many who use Divine Bounty Activated Charcoal to experience these healing benefits. This formula continues to gain popularity due to its high potency and purity.

What makes it even more beneficial is that it is crafted carefully in an FDA-inspected facility in the United States. It could be a great formula for those who want to whiten their teeth, filter water or fight stomach issues.
