New York City (home of fraudulent on Wall Street who has ripped off the economy and destroyed it about a dozen times since 1929 with impunity and the assistance of their crooked friends in Washington DC) recently was exposed as mislabeling and misbranding nearly half of all fish sold in restaurants and supermarkets as something more expensive and safe.

We now see a feeble spin attempt to sell “Trash” or “Junk” fish in the attached article.

(Note Sarcasm) Maybe the next bait and switch move will make it “trendy” to sell radioactive fish from Fukushima, Japan, and down stream of other nuclear powder plants.

(Continued Sarcasm) “Oh waiter, do you have a nice genetically modified and cancer causing lemon for my trash fish?!”

Most people have only ever seen a scorpion fish in an aquarium. Unless they dine at Carolina Crossroads Restaurant in Chapel Hill, N.C., where they’ll find the spiny, venomous creature on the menu.

Sustainable seafood is FARM RAISED genetically modified Frankenfish, do not consume it from WHOLE PAYCHECK!

This is the same over priced eye-candy super mainstream market chain that still has abortive and internal bleeding causing (in any human at low ingestion levels) AGAVE fake sweeteners on their shelves, that is NOT Generally Recognized As Safe, and illegally/criminally FRAUDULENT in ingredient declaration, per the FDA in writing! Fake agave is = “70 to 90 DE Hydrolyzed High Fructose Inulin Syrup” and will harm ANY human at ANY level!

LET THE BUYER BEWARE!

~ Uncle Russ

Whole Foods Market said Friday that it will stop selling fish caught from depleted waters or through ecologically damaging methods, a move that comes as supermarkets nationwide try to make their seafood selections more sustainable.

Those plump and tempting scallops behind the fish counter glass might be a lot smaller than they look — a sodium-based compound can bloat scallops well past their actual size. And that pollock fillet isn’t such a good deal if the price includes the layers of ice glazed onto it to keep it fresh.

Forget DRUGS, just consume plants.

~ Uncle Russ

ScienceDaily (Mar. 17, 2010) — Toxins released by certain microalgae can contaminate fish and shellfish which then become toxic to humans. Researchers from CNRS (1) and CEA (2) have, for the first time, identified the mechanisms of action of two of these toxins. They have shown how and why they cause neurological symptoms. These findings could provide a basis for the development of new tests to screen for these toxins.
