Although imho with the radiation in the Pacific, I would think it is not the best choice.
( btw, i do not eat fish)
I think there's a vitamin D deficiency because our food and drug administration puts the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance), at just 400 IU's per day and state that higher amounts can be toxic, which they can, if too much is consumed over a period of time. I have a doctor concerned with vitamin D levels, especially amongst her patients that take excessive amounts. I was consuming between seven and ten thousand IU's per day and when checked i was in the normal range. However, i'd switched my main vitamin D supplement, which contained three thousand IU's less than my other brand and when my D was checked recently i was too low. That being said i'd say it's likely most people are highly deficient in vitamin D and most of the other vitamins unless supplements are being taken daily.
Used to consume a lot of fish, but now less than occasionalIy and only then small amounts. I now have a gluten intolerance and there are many foods i shouldn't eat, so seafood should've been easier to put on that list, only there are too many delicious variations to count!
