Salmon is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It’s particularly high in omega-3 fatty acid, which can help lower triglyceride levels and blood pressure. Salmon also contains energy-boosting B vitamins and vitamin D, which is found naturally in very few foods. The problem with the farmed variety of the fish: “Farmed salmon is higher in contaminants and contains more saturated fat and more sodium compared to wild salmon," explains Zuckerbrot. "So opt for wild salmon when possible and you’ll also get more potassium, calcium, and iron.”
They may taste good, and appear somewhat harmless, but if you value your health, step away from these chemical-laced, high-sugar foods.
