1. Farm-raised Salmon
Farmed salmon are raised on an unnatural diet of grains, antibiotics and other drugs, which causes their flesh to turn a gray color. To get rid of the not-so-appetizing color, they’re fed synthetic astaxanthin made from petrochemicals. That’s a mouthful, but the important part is that it has not been approved for human consumption. Farmed salmon that are fed these chemicals are banned in both Australia and New Zealand.

In animals, they cause intestinal damage, organ damage, tumors, birth defects and premature death. The U.S. has not banned this food, but the European Union has.
