Posted on 01/04/2006 1:36:28 PM PST by JackDanielsOldNo7
I have recently fallen in love with Sushi. California Roll, Salmon and Tuna. Is eating alot of Sushi bad for you? (Calorie wise, parasites, etc.) I would think it would be healthy. I watch everything I eat like a hawk. Any experts out there?
And like most other things in life, it's fine in moderation (plus, it's so friggin' expensive that moderation isn't difficult to adhere to when it comes to sushi).
We call it bait.
I guess if its good enough for bluefish, its good enough for you.
Unagi gives me the wind.
Most of the food you buy today comes with the government approved levels of bug, fecal material, dirt, and inorganic materials.
Eat away. Just be mindful that rice is a carbohydrate food. Too much of it can expand your waistline.
You needn't worry about professionally prepared sushi, with regard to parasites. The tuna may have a bit of a high level of mercury, but you won't eat just tuna.
Watch your wallet, though...
LEL knows a lot about sushi.
"Unagi gives me the wind."
The better to keep your nether regions aerated, I'd say. Or, as they say in Yorkshire, "Better out than in."
As long as the fish comes from a reputable fish monger, you should be fine. The risk of toxins from bacteria, parasites, or mercury is remote. Eat up! "Fish make you live longer!"Owl_Eagle
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
...when you get the urge to go out back of your garage and bury it by scraping dirt together, it's time to see somebody about it
Dirtboy is right.
Also note that nutritionists (dang them) now have this idea that there are higher risks due to mercury in seafood than previously believed so that the portion is no more than 2 servings of seafood per week. This doesn't mean two pieces of sushi, but rather the equivalent of two normal servings of fish, which I think is supposed to be about 3 or 4 ounces (stingy, aren't they?)
Sushi can have 150 ppm of rat droppings. If it tests out at 90 ppm, they add 60 ppm more.
Then you'd most likely enjoy field mice too. 8>)
I assumed the omega 3 acids in the fish was always good for the heart but I'm no expert
There's just something about lifting rice wrapped in seaweed to your mouth and seeing a piece of tentacle flop out.
Plus, you can't do this with cheese fondue!
Fugu martin! :)
