“Do not consume farm fish” warning!

Stating that the fish undertakes the role of a pharmacy for the body, Gastroenterology Specialist Prof. Dr. Vedat Göral said that it contains various proteins, fat, omega3, zinc, iron, magnesium, iodine, fluorine and all 13 vitamins.

That’s why fish is indispensable, Prof. Dr. Göral said, “Fish helps to regulate and strengthen the immune system. It should be consumed especially in winter. Adults should consume it at least 2 times a week, and children at least once a week. The head of the meal should be 180-200 grams. In adults; bone, strengthens memory. It regulates the skin, immune system and heart functions. There are also claims that it reduces Alzheimer’s disease. In children, it is very important to consume fish because it contains all the vitamins.


Mentioning that when fish is not consumed, problems may not arise in people if they are fed from other sources, Prof. Dr. Göral made the following statements: “Especially meat consumption is important for the health of the human body. However, if both fish and meat are not consumed, this time vitamin, especially Omega-3 deficiency can cause bone meltdown, skin wrinkles and memory impairment. The richest in terms of content, that is, the fish of the fish, is anchovy. He should not buy the fish at random. It is very important to find a special, well-known, reliable fisherman for you. Anchovy can be 12-13 cm, for sea bass or sea bream it can be 20-21 cm, eel can sometimes grow up to 50 cm. It is important that the fish be of sufficient size. In addition, the fish you will consume must be sea fish, not farm fish.”


Stating that there will be no problem when swallowing a small fish bone, Prof. Dr. Göral says, “They don’t do much, but when you swallow very large bones, the result is; perforation in the esophagus, inflammation, perforation and can go to death. In such a case, if the fishbone is in the throat without panic, you should consult an otolaryngologist. If it has escaped into the esophagus, it is necessary to perform an endoscopy and remove the bone of that fish. That’s why families should check if children eat fish. If adults are eating, we recommend that they swallow the fish after checking it in their mouths.


In terms of healthy nutrition, Prof. recommended to consume plenty of vegetables as a complement to fish. Dr. Göral said, “The question of ‘Can yogurt be consumed with fish’ always comes up. Yogurt can be eaten if the fish is fresh. But if the fish is spoiled, because it contains histamine and regenerated yogurt also contains histamine, the excess of these histamines in the body can cause some negative effects. But there is no problem in eating yogurt with fish. Otherwise; Nausea, vomiting, poisoning, abdominal pain can cause low blood pressure.
