    Fish, Mercury & Nutrition: The Net Effects

    January 26, 2020

    (James McGregar)
    Ocean fish are almost an ideal nutrient package for
    pregnancy and breast-feeding. (Emily Oken)
    Women who ate more fish
    during pregnancy had babies that had better
    scores on tests of development at 6 months
    and at 3 years. (Dariush Mozaffarian)
    Since seafood is so important
    for later health, I think it’s very important
    for children and young adults to eat seafood
    to establish that healthy
    dietary pattern at a young age. (John Kanaeko)
    We should not consider fish
    as a mercury delivery system. That’s not what it is;
    it’s a package of nutrients. We need to look
    at those nutrients and see it in its entirety. [synthesizer plays

    Is it safe for pregnant
    and nursing women to eat fish? (man)
    How much fish is safe to eat? (woman)
    Is any fish safe to eat? (male narrator)
    Fish– what to eat
    and how much– has left everyone with
    more questions than answers. Is the answer different
    for children than for adults? How about women
    who are pregnant or nursing? What is the story
    when it comes to eating fish? We all know that pregnant women
    receive lots of warnings about what to do to protect
    their developing babies– exercise, take vitamins,
    avoid alcohol and smoking. And mothers want to eat foods
    that are good for baby. You’ll get one chance to develop
    a brain, and if the brain has not been
    developed in an optimal way, then that’s what you’re stuck
    with the rest of your life. (narrator)
    Medical researchers have learned that omega-3 fatty acids,
    particularly DHA, are critical
    for brain development. The brain is made of fats
    and lipids. and some of these fats and lipids can only be
    obtained from the diet, especially DHA, one
    of the omega-3 fatty acids. So if you don’t eat enough
    omega-3 fatty acids, it has a profound impact
    because you literally can’t make a new brain without
    adequate amounts of DHA. Sort of like building a house–
    you can’t do it without
    concrete and 2x4s. If it’s not there, if it’s not
    present in the diet, the neurons don’t form correctly, and they
    don’t function correctly. Omega-3 fatty acids are found
    in minor sources in plants. And so flax seed and walnuts and
    soybeans are some sources. But the long-chain omega-3s are only found
    in shellfish and fish. And the omega-3 fatty acids can’t be made by humans
    to any appreciable extent. So really to get the long-chain
    omega-3 fatty acids in the body, you have to eat seafood. (narrator)
    Not having enough seafood
    in the diet could have major impacts
    on the developing brain, both in the womb
    and during infancy. DHA is particularly important
    for the structure and funcon of the brain and the eye,
    the neurologic tissues. And it appears that
    the great majority of the DHA that’s in the brain and the eye is taken up in the third
    trimester of pregnancy and the first year
    or two of life. Some experts recommend women
    during pregnancy try to get in about 200 mg of
    DHA a day. On average in the U.S.,
    pregnant women are getting around 80 mg
    of DHA a day. That would be in contrast to
    women in Norway, for example, that consume about 300 mg,
    in Japan, even higher. And we have one
    of the lowest DHA levels in human milk in the world. The Sudan in Africa is below us;
    vegan vegetarians are lower. But we are in comparison to some
    very severely deprived groups. (woman)
    You’re missing something here–
    check that out. (narrator)
    Such low levels are of concern because the DHA found
    in shellfish and fish helps young brains develop
    as measured by everything– from their attention span
    to IQ scores. The story that is well developed
    for the last 30 years on omega-3 fatty acids,
    and DHA in particular, is related to neural development,
    to visual development. But even recently we’re
    finding that DHA is affecting the developing
    autonomic nervous system, the developing immune system. So far the story is
    if you eat more DHA, there’s benefits
    for all the systems. (narrator)
    But this story isn’t
    reaching the public. Instead of DHA and other
    critical nutrients that fish provide, people are
    hearing about mercury. (Emily Oken)
    We just finished
    some focus groups among women about
    their fish consumption. Most of the women,
    who were all pregnant, had received some information about
    the federal mercury advisory that mercury is bad
    for the brain, and they should avoid fish
    containing mercury, and they got a list. None of them got any advice about the fact that fish
    contains beneficial nutrients. Some of them knew that, but none
    of them received advice and none of them were told to
    eat fish during pregnancy. (narrator)
    Pregnant women aren’t
    the only group who are missing the message that eating
    ocean fish is good for health. Many people
    don’t recognize that the current
    health advisory from the federal
    government over fish
    consumption is directed towards
    pregnant women. So we’ll have an 80-year-old man
    raise his hand and say, “Well, do I really
    have to limit my sashimi
    consumption because of mercury? That’s crazy! I’ve been eating
    fish for all my life.” I say, “Sir, the likelihood
    of you getting pregnant at this point is
    about like this.” Many analyses have shown that if the general population
    lowered their fish intake by even a small amount because
    of concern, we’d have many thousands of more
    heart disease deaths. And so we don’t want
    that focused advisory, which is really
    for a focused population, to scare everyone else
    away from eating fish. (narrator)
    Concern about mercury
    in our diet stems from mercury poisonings that
    devastated local populations. Fish from the waters
    of Minamata Bay had fed local residents
    for centuries. But in the 1950s, industrial contamination
    of the fish led to tragedy. (Phil Davidson) The Minamata
    experience was a poisoning. This was a result of a chemical
    manufacturing plant pouring effluent into
    the Minamata Bay. The fish were poisoned, and the people who ate the fish
    were also poisoned. Levels of mercury in the fish and in the hair of the humans that were poisoned were
    extremely high and have never been seen again,
    ever, anywhere. (Gary Myers) One of the issues
    was the fact that mothers who consumed the
    contaminated fish could have minimal
    or no symptoms and the infants could be damaged rather severely
    with cerebral palsy. (narrator)
    These tragic poisonings showed that brain damage in children
    could occur with high mercury exposure– hundreds of times higher
    than in a normal diet. Fish naturally contain
    some mercury which they get
    from the aquatic environment. This is because the mercury has
    been converted to a form that is easily digested and
    absorbed by living tissue– from tiny plankton
    to great white sharks. As larger fish eat smaller fish the mercury accumulates
    in their muscle tissues. When we eat fish, we take in
    the mercury from the fish, and pregnant women pass it along
    to their babies. Concerned that pregnant women
    eat enough fish to provide DHA but still protect
    developing brains, the U.S. Food & Drug
    Administration and the U.S. Environmental
    Protection Agency issued a joint
    fish consumption advisory in 2004 for commercial fish. (Michael Bolger)
    Our advisory is specifically
    addressed to women who are pregnant
    and to children. The focus
    of our advisory was on the consumption
    of fish, but primarily
    on 4 species of fish we were
    concerned about. And that is shark, swordfish,
    tilefish, and king mackerel. And on the basis of our
    assessment, we concluded that pregnant women
    should not eat these species. As a matter of prudence,
    we also recommended that children
    not eat these species. And then we gave some further
    advice about the fact that fish is
    an important part of the diet, that there are benefits
    associated with eating fish, and that for women who are
    pregnant we recommended the inclusion of about 12 ounces
    of fish on a weekly basis. It does not address
    the issue of exposure to the rest of the population. The reason
    is because of what we know from
    the scientific literature in terms of
    human health effects. (narrator)
    Studies have been documenting
    diet and child development in fish-eating populations
    for many years. These studies have
    an interesting and sometimes puzzling story. If you look around the world, the people who consume the
    largest amounts of fish are in Japan, and the Seychelles
    is very high too. In fact, there are
    more than 1 billion people who depend on fish
    for nutrition every day. (narrator)
    In the 1980s,
    teams of researchers set out to find out what level
    of mercury exposure from normal seafood
    could cause harm to children. One team traveled
    to the Indian Ocean to the fish-eating population
    of the Seychelles Islands. (Phil Davidson) People in the
    Seychelles eat a lot of fish. At the time we started the main
    study in 1989, the average consumption was 11 fish meals per week. That’s roughly 10 times higher
    than the U.S. (narrator)
    During this same period,
    another team of researchers headed to the Northern Atlantic
    Ocean to the Faroe Islands. It’s a unique community where they eat from the very, very top of the marine food chain. Some people just eat
    cod and salmon and have relatively low
    mercury exposures and some people would eat
    a lot of pilot whale along with fish and have
    much higher mercury exposures. When we looked at the results
    at age 7, we saw very clear deficits that
    were associated with their prenatal mercury exposure,
    that is, from the mother’s diet during
    pregnancy. What determines
    the child’s deficits is the mother’s mercury exposure
    during pregnancy. Our research in the Faroes has
    had a very clear impact because the authorities have
    recommended that the population abstain from eating pilot whale. And we have seen mercury
    concentrations plummeting, especially in pregnant women. They essentially
    don’t eat pilot whale anymore. (narrator)
    In the Seychelles Islands, the story wasn’t so clear. When we first started the study, we did not know what to expect. Most of us thought that we were
    going to immediately discover an adverse association between prenatal mercury levels
    in the maternal hair and the very first measures
    of child development. At 6 months,
    we didn’t find any association at all. So we kept
    looking, thinking that it might
    emerge over time. At 66 months of age, we started
    seeing evidence of “beneficial,” in quotes, associations between maternal hair mercury
    and development outcomes. And we have continued
    to find them. This is probably linked to
    nutrients in the fish that are ingested at
    the same time as the mercury is. (Gary Myers) As we looked
    at our data, it became increasingly apparent
    to us that although we were not
    finding anything directly adverse with
    the mercury exposure, fish consumption itself proposed
    a lot of benefits. Essentially what we found was
    that there were beneficial effects on the
    children’s developmental testing from the long-chain fatty acids,
    specifically omega-3s, and that there were slightly adverse effects
    from the methylmercury, but they more than
    balanced each other out. (narrator)
    So, developmentally speaking, eating ocean fish
    is good for babies. In fact, medical research
    indicates that ocean fish is
    good for everyone. (Dariush Mozaffarian)
    Coronary heart disease is the
    leading killer of men and women in this country and in almost
    every country in the world. Nutrition has
    such an important effect on cardiovascular disease,
    and among nutritional factors, omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA have among the most powerful
    beneficial effects for prevention
    of cardiovascular disease. (James McGregar) In populations
    where more fish is eaten, and that includes northern
    Europe, that includes the Mediterranean area, Japan,
    and the shoreline of Asia, there are different positive
    trends. Higher omega-3s, things that go
    along with the fish consumption, there’s less diabetes,
    there’s less depression, there’s less heart attacks,
    there’s less stroke. (John Kanaeko)
    The national average might be 16 pounds mixed seafood
    per year per person. The best
    estimate is the state
    of Hawaii consumes, per capita,
    on average at least 3 times
    the national average. (narrator)
    People in the United States eat far fewer fish meals than the
    medical community recommends. And it’s having an impact. In Boston, Massachusetts,
    Project Viva followed
    2000 women through pregnancy and assessed the development
    of their children. (Emily Oken)
    The women in Project Viva were eating on average about one
    fish meal a week or less. The women who ate more fish
    during pregnancy had babies that had
    better scores on tests
    of development at 6 months
    and at 3 years. The women who ate more fish
    during pregnancy also had higher mercury levels
    in their blood and hair. But despite that,
    the overall effect of fish
    consumption was that of benefit. (narrator)
    These findings were backed up by a much larger study
    in Great Britain. One of the
    biggest studies was the study in a population
    of mothers and children in the UK called
    the ALSPAC study in which
    they looked at maternal fish
    consumption during pregnancy and child development
    though the school years. The ALSPAC study had data on 14,500 pregnancies and the amounts
    of seafood intake that the mothers ate
    during pregnancy. So we decided
    to evaluate the data to test the letter of the 2004
    EPA and FDA advisory. That advisory advises women
    to eat no more than 12 ounces of seafood per week
    and to avoid certain species. So we divided
    the group of women in ALSPAC into those that ate no seafood, those that ate some seafood
    but didn’t cross the limit, and those who ate more
    than 12 ounces per week. We asked
    which of those 3 groups had children that did the best? Does a diet deficient in seafood
    during pregnancy in the mom have long-term results of harm
    for the children when they were 8 years of age? And they found that in several
    of the outcomes they tested, including components of IQ
    and school performance, that the kids of mothers
    who ate more than 2 weekly fish servings,
    which is the limit currently recommended by the
    federal government, those kids had better developmental
    outcomes in school the years. (Joseph Hibbeln) When they ate
    less than 12 ounces a week, it was associated with nearly
    a doubling of the risk that the children would have
    low verbal IQ. We also found that children
    had greater social problems and peer problems when their
    mothers did not eat sufficient seafood, that is,
    they followed the advisory. And the children also had
    problems with fine motor control and other indicators
    of neural development. So the reviewers and the editors
    of the “Lancet” when we published the paper
    made us add the words that “following the seafood advisory
    was detrimental.” (Emily Oken)
    The study in the Faroe Islands
    subsequently went back and looked at fish consumption
    in their cohort, they found
    the mothers who ate more fish had higher
    mercury levels, but the fish
    consumption was beneficial for
    the child outcomes. (narrator)
    Researchers were seeing the
    importance of eating fish for the healthy development
    of children. Women in the Seychelles ate 12 ocean fish meals per week
    on average. But the trace amounts
    of mercury in the fish didn’t seem to be
    harming their children. Children in the Faroe Islands did seem to have effects
    from mercury. And most of the mercury
    in their mothers’ diets came from eating the mammal
    pilot whale– not fish. Why would that matter? Biochemists and biologists think
    it might be the presence of another beneficial nutrient
    in fish– the element selenium. It was first recognized that
    selenium protected against mercury
    toxicity. This was back in 1967 when they
    did an animal study where they found
    that feeding animals an amount of mercury
    that would kill them could be completely prevented if they were just given
    a similar amount of selenium. (narrator)
    Many important processes in the body need selenium
    to work properly. We know selenium is important for
    brain development from studies
    in which the deletion of selium
    transport to the brain results in severe neurological
    developmental problems. Selenium proteins sequester
    the heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium,
    and lead. But it takes selenium away
    from where it’s needed. (Nick Ralston)
    Selenium is the essential
    molecule that the body needs. Mercury binds the selenium, taking it
    out of place, so it can’t
    perform its essential
    functions. All of the characteristic signs
    and symptoms of mercury toxicity line up exactly
    with what we would expect in an organism
    with selenium deficiency. (narrator)
    Where do we get selenium
    in our diet? The USDA
    found that 17 of the top 25
    sources of selenium in the American
    diet are ocean fish. (narrator)
    The researchers hypothesized that fish containing more
    selenium than mercury could provide enough selenium
    to bind with the mercury and still meet the body’s needs. Researchers tested this idea
    in laboratory studies. (Nick Ralston)
    We gave the selenium
    in the form of ocean fish. So we had to get rid of any
    excess omega-3s or vitamin D. So it’s only
    going to be the protein, which is where
    the selenium resides. We were still feeding huge
    amounts of mercury, amounts that would otherwise eventually
    be lethal to the animals. The animals
    that we gave fish protein, the selenium from the protein
    offset the mercury binding. And the animals maintained
    health, normal growth, and no neural functional
    consequences. So we are feeling fairly
    confident now that ocean fish
    consumption prevents, rather than
    contributes, to causing
    mercury toxicity. Some see people say
    oh yes, but an animal model is not the same as a human. However, it’s very important
    for everyone to recognize that all forms of life
    that have brains have selenium dependent enzymes
    that protect their brains. (narrator)
    But what about the studies
    that suggested harm from mercury from eating normal amounts
    of seafood? Does the selenium explanation
    fit the findings of the Faroe Islands study that
    showed harm from eating seafood? The studies on which the original
    recommendations are based are studies
    in which the primary source of mercury in the diet
    was from pilot whale, which has
    very low levels of selenium. (Nick Ralston)
    They contain far more mercury
    than selenium. Ocean fish are completely
    different than that. Most varieties
    of ocean fish that people
    consider seafoods contain many
    times more selenium
    than mercury. (narrator)
    Ocean fish are enriched in
    selenium because the oceans have been accumulating it
    for millions of years. But what about freshwater fish
    from lakes and rivers? Selenium is not present
    in all freshwater fish. It’s actually a function
    of the local geography and what’s in the minerals
    in the land. The biggest difference that
    I see from the literature and our results is that the
    marine fish have a much higher selenium
    concentration relative to mercury than do the
    freshwater fish. (narrator)
    A U.S. Environmental Protection
    Agency research team looked at how safe the fish were
    based on 2 methods. One method looks only at the
    levels of mercury in fish. The second method compares the level of mercury
    to the level of selenium. So if we use only
    the mercury criterion to evaluate
    the condition of the fish
    that we’ve caught, we see 12% of those fish that
    exceed that mercury criterion. This would result in most cases in states issuing warnings
    against eating these fish. On the other hand if we use the selenium-to-mercury
    assessment approach, only 2.5% of the fish would fall
    into a concern for consumption. The takeaway message
    from this is that there’s
    a vast difference between evaluating the fish
    based on mercury alone versus using the selenium-
    mercury assessment approach. And then the freshwater fish may
    be susceptible to getting increased amounts of
    different kinds of toxicants. That would certainly include
    mercury. So you need to be aware
    of your local fish advisories in terms of nutrition
    during pregnancy. (narrator)
    Every state publishes
    local advisories for the fish
    you can catch yourself. So what does the average
    consumer need to know when they go to the store
    or restaurant? (Emily Oken)
    The average fish consumer who’s
    buying fish in the grocery store just wants to know what’s safe. When we conducted these focus
    groups of pregnant women, they followed the cautionary
    principle often, if there’s any risk, I’d rather
    be safe than sorry, but not recognizing because
    no one had told them that there is risk to eating
    no fish as well. Fish should be a part
    of a varied diet because there are essential
    nutrients in fish, but make sure that the fish
    is low in mercury. (narrator)
    Fish low in mercury are perfect
    for pregnant and nursing moms. As long as pregnant women stay
    away from the 4 fish listed
    in the advisory they can safely eat 12 ounces per week
    of any fish from the store for the benefit
    of their developing baby. For everyone else . . . It’s very important to be very
    clear that for adults, there are actually no
    recommendations to avoid fish that contain moderate amounts of
    mercury or other contaminants. So if somebody eats commercially
    purchased fish in the store and just eats a variety of fish,
    they don’t need to worry about the very low levels
    of toxins in those fish. Generally, dark and oily fish are the richest in omega-3
    fatty acids. And as a total nutrient package,
    fish like sardines are lovely, containing vitamin D and calcium
    and other nutrients. But also salmon and tuna are very rich sources
    of omega-3 fatty acids. Whitefish are also useful. Shellfish and other shrimp are
    also useful. The critical issue is to eat
    that 2 to 3 times a week. (narrator)
    Over a billion people
    around the world benefit from eating
    a diet rich in fish. Ocean fish are almost an ideal
    nutrient package for pregnancy and breast-feeding
    because it contains high-quality protein,
    omega-3 fatty acids. It contains micronutrients as
    well as minerals and vitamins. (Susan Carlson)
    Women in the United States who choose not to consume fish
    during pregnancy or who are not consuming
    some kind of supplement of DHA are taking
    a risk for the development
    of their infant. They may be creating a risk
    for themselves as well. During adult life seafood is probably the single most
    important food you can eat for cardiovascular health,
    just gram for gram, calorie for calorie,
    because it reduces the risk of dying from heart disease
    by about a third. (Gary Myers)
    At this point in time we don’t have
    any very good evidence that the levels that you get
    from consuming fish actually cause adverse effects
    from mercury exposure. And we have really quite good
    evidence these days that fish consumption
    is important to the development
    of the brain in children. (man) Funding is provided by– The National Oceanic and

    Big Fish Audio Momentum Sampler First Look And Review

    January 26, 2020

    what’s up everyone thank you guys for
    joining in today. I am BK back with another banger. today I am reviewing
    the big fish audio momentum. see a lot of people talking about it see a lot of
    people comparing it to Serato sample that’s like comparing cherries to apples
    it’s like comparing pineapple so mangos it’s like you know since it’s a fruit
    but it’s not the same fruit. so momentum is a sampler if you will
    cerrado sample is a sampler where you could chop up your sample you know add
    little effects reverse it randomize right but it’s not the same the the
    closest thing to momentum to compare it to is output arcade now I did videos in
    the past on output arcade and I cancel that subscription because I wasn’t using
    it that much so to be paying $12 I believe it was like $12 a month for
    something that I wasn’t really using I cancelled it now arcade though is a
    great great great great utility momentum however becomes arcades replacement in
    the in the main factor of it just being a free tool right so it’s free to use is
    a free plugin with from big fish audio that unlocks the potential of your loops
    and samples with the next generation of sound sculpting tools so if you’re a
    sound designer this is right up your alley
    okay so basically loops without limitation which means that you can
    pretty much slice affect your loops once you load in your own samples it has
    smart BPM and keister retching algorithms you can edit with
    MIDI in your da W of choice there’s a one shot engine these industry-leading
    sounds from the store and then that’s pretty much what they’re showing us here
    so I’m gonna get off into the MPC software struggle time and show you how
    to tweak the tweaks alright let’s go hey so we in the MPC software we have
    momentum loaded and right away as you open momentum it’s a grandiose of a
    sample area if you will it’s pretty large I’m on my laptop and it pretty
    much fills up the whole screen this is their browser and there’s you know they
    have some things here that you could go ahead and you can purchase like I said
    we’re not here for that so I’m again and I’m going to close that once you close
    that you can bring in your own samples so then a sample from splice so once you
    drop your your sample in there it opens up to the mixer
    this is the mixer it also has the keys down here on which when you play it
    plays in different pitches if you will this is the slice so these are the this
    is the loop and then it also then it it has warps like so if you are used to
    using Ableton the warp markers is right up the alley
    if you used to use a cerrado studio or cerrado sample with the work markers
    same thing what I’m looking for is I want to tune it so it has the key the
    BPM it didn’t read the BPM automatically as they says they say it does did not do
    so you can trim it you can repeat the slices you can clear it you can adjust
    the slices if you want well did it just do that so you might
    when you open it you might be on FX you can randomize the pitch you can
    repeat it or you can clear what you whatever you just did like I said you
    can adjust the samples this the warp markers okay so if you have it on slice
    you got to change it to slice or you got to change it to Otto you have different modes such as loop
    backwards boomerang or shot you have one shot that’s per slice not sure what
    boomerang is backwards should be reversed was playing it backwards
    boomerang might be it’ll play the hole ting the whole loop and then come back
    so let’s see all right the backwards is reversed and then loop is just I’m gonna
    change it from these warp markers Triplett gives you auto not auto chops
    but somewhat of a auto chop it just resize I don’t know how it resize but it
    it definitely resized on this function I think I’m gonna leave it on 4th and
    detect the BPM at at 80 which is that’s what they’re saying it is it didn’t order the
    the key the key is in sea scared and run the pitch
    click up here turn it on okay it’s not going it you
    have to be in effects so you go to effects click up here if you want to
    pitch up want to pitch down to randomize it clear that good again is
    the reverse at the stutters add a filter lowpass 12 ever come home filter I don’t
    even work in no I don’t really hear it work
    Oh dummy you gotta turn it on so you gotta make sure you you press the the
    the power button on each one of these because if you just click on it
    you what you don’t turn it on a duck it
    doesn’t work all right let’s clear that this test is low far Oh delay check this delay out turn it on it random try to revert turn that off randomizer time it is a volume and
    effect as well that’s pretty much all of the effects that’s there you can there’s
    a speed you can slow it down all right let’s turn off these uh these effects in
    fact I’m gonna clear up so that’s playing in
    half-half time that’s regular speed this is to time speed seems as if it’s
    playing to your da w’s bpm slice told me slice splice set told me
    that this was 80 so I’m again and I’m going to put it at 80 put it at 180 they have the mute your solo I guess if you had more than
    one sample in here it’ll work you can mute or solo and then there’s also having an EQ that you can turn off and on the chorus the flanger phaser presser limiter the limiter doesn’t seem to
    really do much this delay is kind of funky and then
    their sense this end effects but this thing is is
    pretty stop like it’s pretty it’s pretty dope it’s pretty dope it’s pretty dope
    if you guys are working with it let me know hit me up in the comments section
    let me know what what are your thoughts how you working with it I already see a
    lot of people talking about it’s it’s better than Serato I don’t think it’s
    Serato I don’t think you compare this to Serato I think you compare this to
    Arcade now many of you may have not used Arcade so you don’t know what Arcade is
    but it’s similar to our tape and it’s free so I’m about to put this to use

    Meet the Cruise Origin

    January 26, 2020

    What we’re showing you today is what you’d build if there were no cars. Meet the Cruise Origin. It is self-driven. It is all-electric. It is shared. It is not a concept. It is a production vehicle. I’ve got a ridiculous amount of space here. You can touch your toes. You can stretch. Awesome and affordable—it’s right for you. Electric and shared—that’s what’s right for the world.
