We hope this will be a pre-emptive strike on the inevitable flurry of nonsense from farmed salmon-haters out there who seize on anything (without reading it properly) to bash their favourite strawman.
In this case, new came out yesterday that calcitonin salmon should not be used to treat osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. The recommendation came from the FDA, which was concerned that the benefits of calcitonin salmon may be outweighed by its risk to cause cancer.
This does not mean that post-menopausal women who eat farmed salmon are at higher risk of getting cancer.
Not even close.
Calcitonin salmon is not a salmon fillet. It is a man-made, synthetic version of the hormone calcitonin, which occurs naturally in salmon.
There is no risk of ingesting dangerous levels of calcitonin from a delicious farmed salmon dinner.
