But as tasty as some people may find it, there's, in fact, something hugely unsavory about it.I hope the information provided here will serve as very important information for you and your future choices.
Your guess is as good as mine.5) Pangas are Injected with Hormones Derived from Urine - I don't know how someone came up with this one out but they've discovered that if they inject female Pangas with hormones made from the dehydrated urine of pregnant women, the female Pangas grow much quicker and produce eggs faster ( one Panga can lay approximately 500,000 eggs at one time ).
Essentially, they're injecting fish with hormones ( they come all of the way from a pharmaceutical company in China ) to speed up the process of growth and reproduction. Some of you might not mind eating fish injected with dehydrated pee, so if you don't, good for you, but just consider the rest of the reasons to NOT eat it..7) Buying Pangas supports unscrupulous, greedy evil corporations and food conglomerates that don't care about the health and well-being of human beings.
The Office star, 29, and actress, 26, who have been dating since November 2008, are engaged, his rep confirms to PEOPLE."We can confirm that John and Emily are engaged," says the rep.
Emily and Micheal broke up after those pictures came out from that woman who said she had an affair were posted on the internet.
They only are concerned about selling as many pangas as possible to unsuspecting consumers.
These corporations only care about selling and making more money at whatever cost to the public.8) Pangas will make you sick - If ( for reasons in #1 above ) you don't get immediately ill with vomiting, diarrhea and effects from severe food poisoning, congratulations, you have an iron stomach! Final important note: Because of the prodigious amount of availability of Pangas, be warned that they will certainly find their way into other foods: surimi ( those pressed fish things, imitation crab sticks ), fish sticks, fish terrines, and probably in some pet foods.
This kind of nourishment doesn't even remotely resemble what they eat in nature.
But what it does resemble is the method of feeding mad cows ( cows were fed cows, remember? What they feed pangas is completely unregulated so there are most likely other dangerous substances and hormones thrown into the mix. ) : 4 times faster than in nature¡Kso it makes you wonder what exactly is in their food?
The reasons are that the Mekong River is one of the most polluted rivers on the planet and this is where pangas are farmed and industries along the river dump chemicals and industrial waste directly into it.
To Note: a friend lab tests these fish and tells us to avoid eating them due to high amounts of contamination.
( More about that below ) and finally, they are transported from Vietnam to France .
