piven_fishFor years people have believed that fish is a magical “health” food that’s great for your body. However, the truth is that the seafood industry can not only be harmful to the environment, but harmful to one’s health.

Case in point: Entourage star Jeremy Piven was forced to leave the Broadway production of Speed The Plow this week after suffering from high levels of mercury from, according to one source, may be the result eating too much fish.

Piven’s doctor said the test revealed a “a very, very elevated level of mercury” in Mr. Piven’s blood, adding that it was five to six times the upper limit that is typically measured. Left untreated, Dr. Colker said, the condition could result in heart problems, cognitive problems, renal failure and, in very extreme cases, death.

In a recent article in the New York Times, Dr. Roberta F. White, the chairwoman of the department of environmental health at Boston University, is quoting saying that the consumption of fish high in quantities of methylmercury could cause health problems consistent with Mr. Piven’s symptoms.

So what’s the best way to avoid this health disaster? Help save the oceans and your body and PUT DOWN THE SEAFOOD!
