Our local fish are highly contaminated with PCBs,
furans and traces of dioxins.
Our wonderful health agencies tell fishermen that
if they trim off the skin and belly fat, and
broil instead of fry the fish (so the fat drips
off), this will greatly reduce the contamination
and their health risks.
But does the heating, scorching, and cooking
actually CONVERT the remaining PCBs and furans
into much more toxic Dioxins?
I've asked many agency staff and some scientists
if they know of any studies on this, but of
course they all reassured me (without evidence)
that this wouldn't occur.
What's the truth?
