Here’s another reason to say no to shark’s fin soup. Aside from it being unconscionable to eat, sharks may contain high levels of mercury. According to research from the University of Kuopio in Finland, men who ate two portions of this a day were 70% more likely to get heart disease. The reason? Sharks eat smaller fishes with low mercury but they are unable to break it down so it builds up to dangerous levels in their bodies. Have a salmon instead. These fishes eat mainly plankton and have very low mercury levels.
