'Tilapia , one of the cheapest and most popular fish in the United States, may actually lead to many serious health problems.

Their feed is not natural — in the wild, tilapia would eat algae and lake plants, but the farms fatten up the fish on GMO corn and soy pellets. The amount of healthful fish oils in these creatures is almost non-existent, negating the main reason why fish is so good for us.  

Almost all tilapia sold in the U.S. is hormone drug treated. Did you know that the low price of tilapia  is achieved by converting the young females to males through the use of the hormone drug 17alpha-methytestosterone? Having an all male population allows fish farmers to produce larger fish in a short period of time.'
