Major studies have concluded that people shouldn't eat farm-raised salmon more than once a month in most cases because the fish contains long-lived industrial chemicals that increase the risk of cancer. Wild salmon carry lower levels of PCBs, dioxins and other contaminants. The average dioxin level in farm-raised salmon was 11 times higher than in wild&nbsp;salmon.&nbspRead More...
