Another Convincing Argument Not to Eat Fish

"I make little account of victory. Nothing is so stupid as to vanquish; the real glory is to convince."
  -- Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Has Notmilk convinced you yet that there are no exceptions to the benefits derived from eating an entirely plant-based diet? Today might become that day and if it is because of the science contained within this column, that will become your major victory, and Notmilk's secondary glory.

One day, the sky might open up, and an enormous arm holding a flaming sword may point the way for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse with lion heads and scorpion tails to begin biting & stinging earth's inhabitants, but on that day, there will remain stubborn people who will need additional convincing that Revelations 6-9 is hitting the fan...

The first of the four horsemen is called Pestilence, and represents plagues. The other three are not named, Dasher, Dancer, and Prancer.

Notmilk has recently warned that seafood is loaded with mercury, which has been implicated as a causative agent of cancers and neurological disorders. conversations/messages/5158

Before that, Notmilk reported that seafood contains aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fish tapeworms which colonize in human bodies. conversations/messages/5153

The November 1, 2014 issue of The Letters of Applied Microbiology includes a study that will be ignored by these same doubters.

Scientists have tested 100 samples of ready-to-eat (RTE) fish products for the presence of Methicillin-Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA) and found that 43 percent of those samples were tainted.

Researchers conclude:

"The presence of methicillin-resistant staphylococci, especially MRSA and MRSE, in RTE fish products may constitute a potential health risk for consumers."

Hundreds and thousands and millions of people should be reached by today's news, but if even one person stops eating fish and becomes healthier in the process, that is the world-changing motivation and reward which Notmilk seeks.
