About mad cow disease, dioxin chickens et all vs fish.
Last week the European Council issued a general warning for children and
pregnant women not to eat fish more than twice a week due to high mercury

I'm afraid the only food that still is kosjer (in a broad sense) to eat, is
the food you produce yourself. And even then the soil you're using is
bulking of heavy metals etc.

We thought we could influence and control the food chain, and now we're
starting to collect the fruits of our own vanity...
