The Active Times-logo Av Nicole Dossantos av The Active Times | Lysbilde 1 av 11: <p><strong><a href="">Salmon</a> </strong>is on every superfood list and fish in general is known for its endless benefits on people’s mental and physical health.

Some fish pose a high risks, canned tuna and salmon may contain carcinogenic chemicals because of the tin, and studies have <a href=""><strong>shown</strong></a> that fish is raised with antibiotics too.</p><p>Fish are full of <strong><a href="">contaminants such as mercury</a></strong>, which is extremely toxic. Each fish absorbs the mercury of the smaller fish it has eaten. This is why the largest and oldest fish contain the most mercury.</p><p>It is advised to avoid eating shark, golden bass and swordfish as they contain high levels of mercury. The <a href=""><strong>National Center for Health Research</strong></a> says to “check local advisories about the safety of fish caught in local lakes, rivers, and coastal areas. If no advice is available, eat no more than 6 ounces per week of locally caught fish, and do not consume any other fish during that week.”</p>
