    Everything besides the shellfish sounds good. I have never tried shellfish, but it doesn’t appeal to me.

      Then you’re clearly a stupid bitch! :D

      I don’t like fish, but I love shellfish. I could eat shrimp every single day of my life and never get tired of it. Great, now I want garlic shrimp.

    ok c’mon, shellfish? Seafood in general is one of the most toxic and chemically-laden things you can ingest. Not to mention, full of artery-clogging cholesterol and saturated fat. If you really are after Iron, and not trying to kill yourself, dried HERBS have FIVE TIMES the IRON than the highest animal product (Clams-yuck) and Cereals, Cocoa Powder, Spirulina, and Bran ALL BEAT ANY ANIMAL PRODUCT for concentrations of IRON…. AND these foods do NOT contain saturated fat or cholesterol.

    Eat seafood if you want to end up on the floor with a heart attack. It’s really simple.

      Man, C. Hill, you are bursting with strong opinions, aren’t you? Whenever anybody says “it’s really simple,” it’s an excellent sign the exact opposite is true. Nothing is ever that simple, especially when it comes to nutrition and the complexity of the human body. Please share with us your credentials so that we can evaluate the expertise on which your strong opinions are based?

        Man, Dillonvale, why didn’t you take issue with the actual factual things i said in my post? instead you focused on the one hyperbolic thing i said– which wasn’t actually much of a stretch.

        the article mentioned says that you should “eat seafood” to “speed up your metabolism” because seafood has “iron”. can we agree that this is the crux of this article?

        i don’t even know where to start dissecting the logic in this one.

        but, can we agree, DillonVale 1964 that:

        1. it is important to have iron in your diet.
        2. there are many foods higher in iron than shellfish that do not also contain the high concentrations of saturated fat and cholesterol as are found in seafood.
        3. there are many foods with slightly less concentration of iron than shellfish have that also do not contain saturated fat and cholesterol
        4. saturated fat and cholesterol are known to cause heart disease and stroke, our leading killers.
        5. the FDA, by LAW, prohibits marketing seafood as “healthy” or “nutritious” because the products do not meet the minimum legal standards — because of the saturated fat and cholesterol. (same with eggs, by the way)

        So my issue is with telling people to eat shellfish to “boost their metabolism” because it contains “iron”. That’s like telling people to “drink Coke” because it contains “water” and “water is good for you”.

        This is my opinion DillonVale. You do not need my credentials– I am not charging you.

          One man’s food is another’s poison. To each his own. You don’t have to force your opinions upon others. If it doesn’t suit you, don’t eat it. It does not mean if you don’t like something, nobody should eat it.

      Shellfish in and of itself is not high in cholesteral. It’s how you prepare it that will determine how bad it is for you.

  • E Harris

    I like shellfish so glad to see it on the list!

  • JoAnn

    I am sure some of you have eaten shellfish such as shrimp and lobster. Nothing wrong with that.

    Bla bla bla…. If you like it eat it….. In my 47 years I’ve seen many different ppl, that eat different, from each other. At the end everybody get sick and die…. Many ppl never had a life seeking a life.

    I do not like seafood but its misnomer that seafood is toxic. It depends on the size of the critter you are eating. If you are eating large sword fish or salmon they tend to have more heavy metals than small organisms like Shell Fish, Shrimp, small/medium fish. For toxicity size and duration of life matter.
