The top three sources of industrial toxins in the diet are fish oil, fish, and eggs.

What about all the other industrial pollutants, like PCBs?
In perhaps the largest study to date, more than 12,000 food and feed samples tested across 18 countries. In the 11,000 food samples tested, "the highest mean contamination level was observed in fish and eggs: fish, and fish derived products followed by eggs, milk and their products, and then meat and meat products from land-based animals. The lowest contamination was observed in foods of plant origin."
Reason enough to transition towards a plant-based diet. Here’s the data: Fish oil is just off the charts 117 mikes per k.g. Fish meat 35, eggs, with quantifiable levels found in 94% of eggs tested, dairy, beef/pork/chicken, and then , plant foods 0.08.

Please feel free to post any ask-the-doctor type questions here in the comments section and I’d be happy to try to answer them. Be sure to check out the other videos on PCBs. Also, there are 1,449 subjects covered in my other videos–please feel free to explore them!
