Point & Kill: Killer part of Catfish you don’t know about
Fish is better than beef, no doubt. It digests easily and it contains proteins.
However, catfish is not really a good option, especially the ones they sell these days, which are cultivated with hormonal feeds that are filled with steroids and other fattening chemicals just to make them profitable.
These chemicals are cancerous in nature. We are aware that some fish farmers don’t use steroids but they are few and farther in between, so please do due diligence in research before purchasing.
They contain so much oil that you can almost taste it. Fish, generally, contains oil, but catfish has oil in its skin. That is what makes it so oily and unhealthy.
It also contains a lot of poly unsaturated fat that does not only make you fat but also settles in the blood stream. That is very dangerous because when blood fails to get to an organ, it fails and suffers paralysis.
If you can get the one from the river, which is rare in most cities, then you may eat it twice a month.
But if the only one you can get is the one that is being reared by farmers, you don’t have to eat at all, or just eat it when it is partially smoked.
In that way, some of the fats would have been lost in the process. Better still, there are some other species of fish that are oily but they contain good fats and are more nutritious.
Catfish is delicious but its sad to know that it is harmful to our health and good health assures you of a good life.
