Widely held beliefs about the safety of eating aquatic creatures is challenged in these pages by a range of evidence about the many toxins,
particularly mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), that travel
up the food chain into both farmed and wild fish and then into the
humans who eat them.
The book also examines the ethical dimension of human conduct and
cruelty toward other forms of life and the extent to which an animal's
intelligence should determine whether we eat them.
