If it ainít one thingÖ..itís another.

Anyone who thinks they can live 73 years in this world ( like me as of today) and be free from any so called toxic substances, should probably never have been born.

But, thatís hard to do. We donít have much choice of being born. Thatís up to two other people.
If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

OK, I'm going out on a limb here. Let me know if I'm wrong. From what I have read and heard MOST states when they test fish for consumption don't test the whole fish with skin, guts and skin for these dangerous toxins. From what I understand NYS does. Why test the whole fish for this stuff when no one really eats the whole fish?? Could someone please enlighten me? Thanks.

As best I can determine, here is a copy of the original abstract that was submitted for peer review.  Not really clearly stated as to whether they  ground up the entire fish or just the filet. I will reach out to a professor friend of mine for clarification and I have sent this professor an e mail.

And, researching the guy further, heís on a PFAS kick.  Dairy farms, sewage treatment plants, and just about all food containers including paper straws are contaminated.
This goes back to the 1940ís.  We all should have been dead years ago.

I have no lead in I disagree, maybe a little mercury. I also have eaten fish, mostly perch, at least once a week or more.
Still kicking and wanting to eat more, catch also.

I'm kinda tired of hearing all the "alarmists" telling the world how contaminated our fish are...I'm 75 yrs old and some of my fishing buddies are around the same age or older and we all are still around, still hunting and fishing walk around in the woods without a walker, climbing treestands and as some have said eat at least 1 or more meals of fish per week. We usually eat fillets (although occasionally whole gills/crappie) and leave the belly meat off of the fish...I say eat fish and be healthy and happy!!
take a kid hunting and fishing, it's a lot better than leaving them on the streets!!

I agree John.  Iím 74 and I know I have eaten fish at least twice/ week. 
I just got word back from the scientist in charge of the study.
To put all rumors to rest, NY does not use whole fish samples.  The samples are filets.  But, they leave the rib cage and belly meat on.  I got back to him and told him fishermen donít do that.  I know for a fact that the belly flap has the fattiest tissue and that is where most of the contaminants are found. 
Unless they change their sampling technique, consider this bad science. Basically for show.

You are right...that's why we don't include the belly meat and probably why we're still around but wonder even how much the rest of the science is as bad as they really say. Good to hear from you Jim hope you're doing well.
