Is it worth eating tilapia?

The Sea Fisheries Institute - National Research Institute conducted research on the presence of undesirable substances in marine and farmed fish.

Scientists found that in species imported from Vietnam and China, including tilapia meat

higher concentration of lead was detected compared to other fish.

But that's not all. The tilapia also contained mercury and cadmium, experts say, albeit in low quantities

To add insult to injury, scientists from Wake Forest University have shown that the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in tilapia meat is very unfavorable

Such a combination can potentially be a dangerous source of diseases for patients with heart disease

it can also foster joint inflammation, be a factor causing asthma and other allergic and immunological diseases
