GOOD FISH: Wild salmon, sardines and muscles
BAD FISH: Shark, Tuna Tilapia

Healthiest and Worst Canned Fish - Buy THIS not THAT






00:00

hey it's thomas delauer and i want to

00:02

give you the three fish

00:03

that you should avoid at all costs

00:06

because right now there's a few fish

00:07

that are out on the market

00:08

that can definitely be holding you back

00:10

keeping you from reaching your goals

00:12

and keeping you from feeling your best

00:13

now in addition to that i don't want to

00:15

just have a negative video so i'm going

00:16

to give you the three fish

00:17

that i think you should eat the three

00:19

fish that i think you are safe

00:20

to consume a lot of to not only get your

00:23

requirements of protein

00:24

but to also be able to reduce your

00:26

overall amounts of mercury and heavy

00:27

metals within your bloodstream

00:29

okay so when i determine what kind of

00:31

fish that i eat

00:32

i look at three different factors the

00:34

first one i look at is contamination and

00:36

i'm going to talk about that in some

00:37

more detail here in just a second i want

00:39

to make sure that you stick with me to

00:40

the end of the video because i'm going

00:41

to explain all the details

00:42

as we go the second one that i generally

00:44

focus on are the overall health benefits

00:47

of the fish that you're actually eating

00:48

so we look at the contamination levels

00:50

for fish to avoid then we look at the

00:51

actual health benefits for fish that we

00:53

want to eat

00:54

and then the third thing that i look at

00:55

is the overall sustainability

00:58

is it sustainably fished i mean that's a

01:00

moral and ethical thing to be completely

01:01

honest because if we overfish then we

01:03

could be out of some of these good

01:04

healthy fish

01:05

in the next five or six years and it's

01:07

really that imminent

01:08

so let's talk about these factors okay

01:10

the first one being contamination

01:12

mainly i'm talking about mercury and

01:14

lead okay you hear about this all the

01:16

time

01:16

hear about these heavy metals that are

01:18

getting into our food supply getting

01:19

into our fish supply

01:20

well how exactly does it work okay so

01:23

really since this big industrial

01:24

revolution especially within the last 20

01:26

30 years we've been having a lot of

01:27

heavy metals

01:28

getting into our water supply whether

01:30

it's going to be the rivers lakes

01:31

streams

01:32

but most of all it's going into our

01:33

ocean supply what happens is when we

01:35

have heavy amounts of mercury within our

01:38

system it causes some serious central

01:40

nervous system issues

01:42

okay i'm not just talking like little

01:43

mild things actual mercury poisoning can

01:45

make you feel like total garbage it can

01:47

make so your muscles don't contract well

01:49

if maybe you're wondering like you're

01:50

feeling weak a lot weaker lately you're

01:52

not able to get the pump you're not able

01:53

to really feel like you're working out

01:55

it could be something to do with mercury

01:57

now additionally it takes like 12 to 18

01:59

months for mercury to clear out of your

02:00

system

02:01

so even when you start a detox regimen

02:03

to try to get the mercury out

02:05

it's staying with you for quite a while

02:07

and the people that are at the most risk

02:08

with this are going to be pregnant women

02:10

because obviously when mercury stays in

02:12

the system for that long

02:13

it can affect you throughout the entire

02:15

gestation period and it can actually

02:17

cause

02:17

offspring to actually deal with the same

02:19

kind of issues

02:20

that the adult is dealing with when it

02:22

comes to the central nervous system it

02:23

can actually cause some issues from a

02:25

developmental standpoint

02:26

meaning it can affect how your brain

02:29

actually develops

02:30

and how you actually think later on down

02:31

the line okay so the fish that generally

02:33

have high amounts of mercury

02:35

are usually the larger predatory fish

02:38

simply because they have a longer life

02:40

expectancy they're in the water for a

02:41

long period of time

02:42

they're absorbing a lot of these

02:43

nutrients they're usually more dense

02:45

we're talking about shark we're talking

02:47

about tuna talking about swordfish where

02:49

they actually absorb

02:50

more of these heavy metals and hold on

02:52

to them for a longer amount of time

02:54

increasing the overall density of those

02:56

metals within the actual flesh of the

02:58

fish

02:59

okay now the next thing we want to look

03:00

at are industrial chemical toxins i'm

03:03

talking about

03:04

ddt i'm talking about diotoxins i'm

03:06

talking about pcbs these are all

03:08

byproducts of regular everyday factories

03:11

and a lot of times again these leak into

03:12

the streams these look into the rivers

03:14

and they ultimately end up in the oceans

03:16

well because they are heavier they are a

03:18

higher density than water

03:19

they end up floating down to the bottom

03:21

the ones that these usually affect are

03:22

going to be fish like eels

03:24

like sea trout like sea bass the fish

03:25

that are usually loitering around the

03:27

bottom

03:28

okay now these kinds of chemicals can

03:30

literally take

03:31

five to eight years to clear out of your

03:33

body also

03:34

causing huge central nervous system

03:36

issues very similar to nerve gas it can

03:38

actually do that on a very small scale

03:40

so we want to be very cognizant of the

03:42

kind of fish that we're taking in there

03:44

okay then lastly of course we look at

03:45

sustainability now the reason that i

03:47

look at sustainability

03:48

is because not just moral and ethical

03:50

reasons and trying to save the planet

03:51

it's beyond that

03:53

you see when we overfish a lot of times

03:55

what can end up happening

03:57

is these overall species end up dying

03:59

off and then if they don't die off all

04:01

the way a lot of times there can be

04:02

genetic mutations and they end up not

04:04

becoming the same fish they were

04:06

10 15 years ago and they may not be as

04:08

good for us

04:09

as they are now okay so let me give you

04:11

the three fish

04:12

that you absolutely should eat and i'm

04:15

going to tell you

04:16

two of them are total surprises the

04:18

first fish i want to talk about is going

04:19

to be wild caught salmon

04:20

something i'm always touting no surprise

04:22

there you probably were expecting me to

04:24

say this

04:25

super high in those omega-3 fatty acids

04:26

that you need to reduce inflammation

04:28

super high in selenium super high in b12

04:31

but additionally it's very very low in

04:33

the heavy metals

04:34

it's a softer tissue fish so it doesn't

04:36

absorb a lot of those heavy metals

04:37

now the thing is you want to make sure

04:39

that it is wild caught

04:40

now a lot of times we come into an issue

04:42

because it's not always in season when

04:43

it's not in season

04:44

we're usually getting it frozen well i

04:46

will tell you if you get wild caught

04:47

salmon that's frozen it is perfectly 100

04:50

fine okay a lot of times they're flash

04:52

frozen a lot of times they're frozen

04:53

shortly after being caught

04:54

they actually preserve a lot of the

04:56

nutrients so you're totally okay there

04:58

the second fish on my list gonna be

05:00

sardines

05:01

okay definitely not one that you were

05:03

expecting those funny little fish that

05:05

are in the can that actually taste

05:06

pretty darn good when you get past the

05:08

fact that they're coming out of a can

05:10

okay sardines extremely extremely low in

05:13

heavy metals

05:14

extremely extremely high in omega-3s

05:17

that you need

05:17

but also very high in selenium which is

05:19

super good for your thyroid

05:21

but also even better they are very high

05:23

in copper and if you've seen my video

05:25

talking about collagen

05:27

you know that copper is needed to

05:30

synthesize collagen and actually utilize

05:31

it within the body so you've got joint

05:33

issues

05:34

you've got gut issues you're trying to

05:35

heal that sardines might be one of the

05:37

tricks

05:38

for you and don't quibble over the fact

05:39

that they're still in a can

05:41

right now a lot of the canned goods are

05:43

starting to get rid of the bpas

05:44

starting to be a lot more conscious of

05:46

the things that we're putting in the

05:47

cans

05:48

and especially when we look at canned

05:50

foods that are suspended in oil

05:52

a lot less of a chance of the toxins

05:54

coming in from the metal

05:55

getting into the food now the next one

05:57

i'm talking about

05:59

isn't even a fish at all i'm talking

06:01

about mussels

06:02

talking about simple little clam-like

06:04

things that you see all over the place

06:05

that are kind of orangey looking or kind

06:07

of weird

06:08

okay if you're someone that's trying to

06:09

get a good amount of protein

06:11

muscles are going to be one of the best

06:13

choices that you can get they are one of

06:14

the most potent

06:16

gram for gram foods to actually get

06:18

protein out of

06:19

and in addition to that super high in

06:21

omega-3s

06:22

super super high in selenium and

06:25

honestly one of the best sources of

06:27

overall trace minerals

06:28

you can possibly get now for the scary

06:31

part what the heck do you want to avoid

06:33

i've given you the three fish you need

06:34

to eat but now i want to give you

06:36

the scary ones okay first one shark

06:38

super predatory fish

06:40

big fish that's swimming around eating

06:42

other predatory fish that already have

06:44

high amounts of mercury in them

06:45

okay so you've got a shark swimming

06:46

around that's eating tuna that's already

06:48

high in mercury

06:49

boom it's just compounding the fact the

06:51

other thing to consider is with sharks

06:53

their gestation period is very

06:55

very long now what happens with this is

06:57

it means that they're not sustainably

06:58

fished

06:59

if someone catches a shark the

07:01

likelihood of it being pregnant is

07:03

actually quite high given the length of

07:04

turn

07:05

so this means that we have a much higher

07:07

chance of wiping out species of shark

07:09

okay now we think about it we got okay

07:11

sharks are big mean and scary what do we

07:12

care if we wipe them out

07:13

well at the end of the day that throws

07:15

off the entire

07:16

sea food chain which throws off all the

07:18

healthy fish that we want to eat

07:20

so i would honestly recommend just

07:22

staying away from shark in the first

07:23

place

07:23

okay the next one we want to look at is

07:25

going to be tuna

07:26

now i'm not opposed to all tuna but most

07:29

tuna

07:30

is very very dense very dense meat now

07:33

if you're going to choose a form of tuna

07:35

the best one that you can choose is

07:36

going to be a u.s yellow fin okay it's

07:38

the healthiest kind

07:39

it's also in an area of the world that

07:41

usually doesn't have as much in the way

07:43

of the heavy metals

07:44

okay so yellow fit is good to go now if

07:45

you're looking at canned tuna

07:47

stay away from the albacore that density

07:49

in the albacore makes it so it's super

07:51

high in those heavy metals

07:52

if you go with the regular chunk like

07:54

tuna you literally have about

07:56

one third the amount of heavy metals

07:58

that you would get from the albacore

08:00

okay the last fish that i want you to

08:01

stay away from is tilapia and i've done

08:04

the video on tilapia so i'm not going to

08:05

go into exquisite detail about tilapia

08:08

but here's the thing tilapia is all

08:10

farmed it's not wild okay

08:12

so all the farm tilapia is coming from

08:14

other countries that don't pay attention

08:15

to quality standards

08:17

tilapia can literally live off of feces

08:20

remind me later to show you a link about

08:22

this whole self-sustained ecosystem

08:24

where there were literally chickens that

08:25

were defecating into a pool of water

08:28

that tilapia could eat and survive off

08:30

of and then they would continue to feed

08:32

the tilapia to the chicken

08:33

the chicken would consume the tilapia

08:35

and then again defecate where the

08:36

tilapia would continue to eat it

08:38

and it was just a self-contained

08:39

ecosystem it shows you that tilapia can

08:41

live off of just about anything

08:43

very low nutrient density so you want to

08:46

avoid that tilapia at all costs

08:48

so there you have it the three fish that

08:50

i think you should pay attention to the

08:51

most right now

08:52

and the three fish that you should

08:53

absolutely x off of that grocery list

08:55

as always keep it locked in here on my

08:57

channel please please please comment

08:59

below and let me know what you think of

09:00

this video

09:01

and let me know what videos you want to
09:03
see in the future
