That's a reasonable concern, but you no longer have to be in the dark about
whether you're absorbing dangerous amounts of toxic chemicals. I eat a
*lot* of fish. It's my main protein source, along with whey protein powder,
and some lean turkey and skinless chicken. Among the numerous tests done
while I was at the Kronos Clinic recently were a series of toxicity tests
(mostly for trace metals). I came out low on all of them, so I'm not
concerned about the fish I eat.
