FRONTLINE: "FISH ON MY PLATE"
April 25, 2017  | By David Bianculli  | 2 comments

PBS, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
In this fascinating documentary, journalist Paul Greenberg vows to eat only fish for one year as his main source of protein, then travels the globe to check out conditions of fish and waterways, and also to try a wide variety of recipes. I hate to be suspicious, but this entire experiment sounds rather fishy. It also sounds rather low-budget. I wonder if he was paid scale. Check local listings.

My husband and I watched this video and thoroughly enjoyed it. Paul Greenberg is so enthusiastic and such a believer in the superior nutrition of the fish he lived on, it broke our hearts when we learned he had not gained any more healthful benefits from the fish diet than if he had eaten "land food". He had high mercury levels after the diet that he didn't have before. His cholesterol levels remained constantly the same. I wonder what he drank when he ate all this fish. Is it possible that he did not drink enough water? Did he have a glass of wine with his meals? I am a believer in the tremendous benefits of water in the daily diet. If he ate all that fish, and drank very minimal amounts of water, what affect did that have?. That tells me that cholesterol has no bearing on human health one way or other. A very interesting program. Please show it again!

Totally Irresponsibility! I worked 5 years at Or Aqua Hatchery in Newport, Oregon. We would raise and release yearlings. At our site we had @ a dozen or so cats eating the young fish who had died. Every cat on site ended up getting what appeared to scurvy. They had their fill but lost weight and had pussy eyes and died within a year or two.
