The seafood we eat also contains small amounts of undesirable substances. Some of these substances are added to ensure more efficient food production (such as delousing agents), others are caused by environmental factors. Examples of undesirable substances include organic environmental toxins such as dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs, or heavy metals such as lead and cadmium. In addition, seafood can contain bacteria or parasites.
