Tilapia is boneless and skinless fish which is very easy to cook and cheap and that is why it is among the most favorite fishes and can be bought in large quantities. This fish is also easily digestible and it contains omega acids, which are beneficial for our overall health. However, there is one thing which is not so positive in the whole story and you must know it.
It is very important to know from where this fish comes from when you buy it and you are planning to cook a delicious dinner. Not all of the fishes in the stores come from natural and clean waters. Some of them are grown up in factory farms. In this case the fish are fed with many different kinds of feeds and fertilizers instead off algae and plants in the open clean waters. Also, the farms use many chemicals for faster growth and to keep them alive.
If you consume tilapia which is grown in fish farms, you may experience many health problems. It can cause joint inflammations, coronary diseases and asthma.
Another dangerous issue is that the can cause cancer because they are fed with different chemicals which contain carcinogenic compounds. Tilapia which is grown in fish farms like these contains fewer nutrients and can be deadly. Think twice before buying tilapia from stores again.
