Global Warming Increases Mercury Toxicity in Fish

Power plants and other industrial facilities are polluting the oceans with mercury, which is later found in fish. To make things worse, studies have shown fish in warmer waters ate more but grew less and had higher mercury levels in their tissues, suggesting increases in their metabolic rate caused the increased uptake of the toxic metal.

Eating fish is not necessary and not healthy, especially because they contain saturated fat, cholesterol and pollutants such as mercury. Replacing fish with healthy plant-based options helps restore their numbers in already devastated oceans. It also helps us avoid causing them much suffering to them and to restore our health.
