    Default To those of you who eat basa fish ..

    A mate of mine who has worked for many years in the fishing industry was actually quite shocked that I ate basa fish. He reckons it's a well known fact they are farmed in dirty, shit filled water and injected with hormones etc in Vietnam. I can honestly say I won't ever eat it again after read these articles.

    Panga is the original name for it.

    Don’t Eat this fish: Pangas (Pangasius, Vietnamese River Cobbler, White Catfish, Gray Sole) | Diet Mind Spirit


    "Panga is industrially farmed in Vietnam along the Mekong River which is apparently one of the most polluted rivers in the world resulting in fish that contains high levels of bacteria; namely arsenic, industrial effluents and toxic and hazardous by-products, metal contaminants, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), DDT and its metabolites (DDTs), chlordane-related compounds (CHLs), hexachlorocyclohexane isomers (HCHs), and hexachlorobenzene (HCB)."

    It is quite cheap, hence the popularity I guess. Coles sell 1kg bags for like $10.
    I wouldn't say it will kill you if you eat it, but I am grateful for my mate for telling me. A fellow bodybuilder also told me about it, so I am shocked to say the least.

    You dont want to know hald the shit i will tell you not to eat

    i.e all your beef and chickens here unless organic have antibiotics and hormones... Beef is castraed then pumped full of oestrogen... Remember hormones are fat soluble so you eat the meat or drink the milk the hormones are in the fat.

    Since majority of westernised countries main forms of cancer are hormone related i.e prostate and breat. It doesnt take much to put 2 and 2 together...

    Thanks for the heads up on the fish

    In saying that, it's probably no worse that what they put in meat pies and fishfingers!

    Not everything i eat is organic because i am a student with medical bills coming out his arse...

    I eat organic beef, lamb has restrictions yes that is why i eat it instead of beef.

    However i eat organic chicken...

    So its only lamb i dont eat that is organic and we do go out for dinner so i have no control over what i eat their..

    Did you know that our beef here isnt accepted by certain countries becasue of what we do to it... In fact we have 2 types of beef 1 we ****ed up and sell to us and another that is free of crpa that we use for exprot.

    How sad and pathetic is that..

    have a look at that noobs and tell me what you think. I personally work in the ag industry so I will make note to talk to a few cattle farmers about the hormones etc when I get a chance.
