Eating seafood can be dangerous because all too often they swim, eat and breed in water that's been contaminated. Recently, dangerously high levels of PCBs have been found in certain seafood. Obviously, avoiding these species is a good idea, as PCBs can lead to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and other deadly diseases.
Below is a list of seafood contaminated with PCBs according to villagevoice.com:
- American eel
- Atlantic and farmed salmon
- Atlantic bluefin tuna
