rumor: animals still want to eat wild, regardless of the taste or nutrition of breeding are not better than wild. Game (food made from wild animals) tastes delicious, tastes good, and has higher nutritional value: low fat content, high protein content The truth of

and

: there are indeed differences between wild animal meat and farmed meat, but which taste is better is largely affected by the subjective feelings of the eater, so we can’t say which one is better. Moreover, the taste does not determine the nutritional value. Even if we prefer the taste of wild animals and do not care about the nutritional value, the health risks brought by wild animals are worthy of our attention.

and

taste good, does not mean high nutritional value,

,

wild animals and breeding animals taste really different. Wild animals in the wild to survive in the wild, so muscle fiber developed, less fat content, taste more muscular. However, due to the lack of an environment to keep them running, the fat content in the muscles of farmed animals is higher than that of wild animals, and the taste is also delicate and soft. Moreover, modern breeding is actually a process of continuously selecting and cultivating meat that is more in line with people’s preferences. However, which taste is better depends on the subjective feeling of the eater. It is difficult to say that the taste of wild animals is better than that of cultured animals.

and

take chicken as an example. The flavor of chicken is largely determined by “flavor nucleotides”, while “Jindao” and “chewy head” are determined by collagen and elastin in meat. These components that determine flavor and taste are related to the growth period of chicken. The shorter the growth time, the lighter and more tender the chicken flavor. But the ingredients that affect the flavor and taste have nothing to do with nutrition.

and

in addition, the psychological effect of “the higher the price of red wine, the better to drink” will also affect people’s judgment of food. In the market, the price of wild animals can even be several times the price of the same species of breeding products, which may give rise to the psychological implication that “the more expensive things taste, the better”.

game: the risk of delicious

in the eyes of some people who love sashimi, wild sashimi is undoubtedly a delicacy. Some people even think that wild sashimi can be eaten at will. However, salmon, salmon, tuna, sea bass, COD, hairtail and so on are intermediate hosts of Anisakis. If the Anisakis infected in their bodies enter the body of the consumers, although they can not develop into adults, the harm of their larvae to human body should not be ignored. Acute anisakiasis caused by a large number of live insects entering the human body is rare, but not rare. It has been reported that more than 800 anisakiasis larvae were isolated from a cod. However, the incidence of anaphylactoid anisakiasis is much higher and the harm to human body is more serious.

and

and frogs and snakes, as common edible wild animals, are the favorite intermediate hosts of some cestodes. Some news shows that more than 150 middle tapeworm larvae were found in one snake. Of course, this problem may also exist in farmed animals, but at least with artificial intervention, parasite infection can be effectively controlled.

and

in addition, viruses carried by wild animals may also infect human beings through close contact or eating. For example, h9n7 avian influenza virus, which caused panic recently, and SARS virus which caused SARS in 2003, scientists have found that it is likely to come from wild animals. Even if

and

thoroughly cook wild animals to kill bacteria and parasites, then diners must also face the next risk – toxicant enrichment. That is to say, in nature, pollutants such as heavy metals enter the biological chain through organisms with lower trophic level and transfer to organisms with higher nutritional level, resulting in the accumulation of harmful substances that can not be decomposed and metabolized by organisms with higher trophic level, and heavy metals cannot be effectively removed. Many people are keen on wild sharks, groupers and all kinds of carnivores, which are seriously enriched in organisms, and the accumulation of heavy metals increases with the growth of weight and age. Therefore, eating these wild animals also means taking over the heavy metals accumulated by them for a lifetime.

at present, China allows 54 kinds of wild animals, such as sika deer, arctic fox, wild boar, African ostrich, etc., to be artificially domesticated and bred after obtaining the permission of artificial domestication and breeding, and can be used for commercial use. This is a big step in the utilization of wild animals. Wild animals entering the market after approval and quarantine can avoid the health risks to the greatest extent. However, judging from the current situation, the market of legal commercial wild animals is still not optimistic. Perhaps it is because the wild animals after artificial domestication and breeding do not sound so “noble”, and people’s pursuit of “pure wild” animals leads to the current situation of selling wild snakes. Another important reason why

and

are misinterpreted is that people misunderstand the breeding industry. When it comes to aquaculture, many people’s first impression is that animals fed with “hormones” and “antibiotics”, so they think that the animals raised will have adverse effects on human health.

and

refer to aquaculture and hormones, the first to bear the brunt are aquaculture and chicken. Chengdu Business Daily, the first one to say contraceptives were used in aquaculture in 1998, reported that a farmer in Chongqing reported to the reporter that the addition of contraceptives in the feed of Monopterus albus made Monopterus albus grow fat and big. As a matter of fact, Monopterus albus is a kind of biology with sex reversal characteristics. The male body is larger, and most of the contraceptives are estrogen. When Monopterus albus ingests estrogen, it will become female, which is undoubtedly a matter of outweighing the gain. Later, rumors such as “prawns with contraceptives” and “crabs with contraceptives” have evolved. But the real situation is that shrimp and crabs are extremely sensitive to hormone levels, and a little careless feeding of contraceptives can cause massive death. Farmers are unlikely to do such things as raising costs and reducing benefits.

as for the problem of “hormone breeding” leading to precocious puberty in children, it is also a rumor. Take chicken as an example. Now the broiler we eat is the product of countless times of cross breeding and extremely strict feeding methods, and the variety of broiler determines itExtremely fast growth rate, no need hormone to promote. According to the “technical regulations for commercial broiler production” revised in 2005, the weight index of broilers at 6 weeks old (42 days) is 2.42 kg. This industry standard seems to be a bit crazy in the eyes of many consumers, but it is the benefit of technology. Otherwise, we will be in a society where only a few people can afford chicken.

and

and “Regulations on the administration of feed and feed additives” and “Regulations on the administration of veterinary drugs” explicitly prohibit the use of hormone breeding. Therefore, it is very unlikely that the so-called “hormone breeding” exists in regular and legal farms.

and

but we still have a problem with the animals in captivity, that is, antibiotic residues. However, to talk about the safety of antibiotic residues, we must look at the residual dose. Announcement No. 235 of the Ministry of agriculture of the people’s Republic of China stipulates in detail the safety residue standards of various veterinary drugs on cultured animals. As long as they are within the prescribed limits, they can be safely eaten. Rational utilization of

and

to protect ecological

The problem of

eating wild animals is not only about “food safety”, but also about ecological protection. Although there are animals that are extinct every year because they can’t adapt to the environment, more wild animals are on the verge of extinction due to human hunting. Today’s game may become the Latin name in the museum tomorrow.

conclusion

wild animals are not higher in nutritional value than cultured animals, on the contrary, they have a higher risk of consumption, and the cultured animals can be safely eaten under the standard of veterinary drug residues. Therefore, I think it is better to choose safer and cheaper breeding animals than to risk health risks to destroy the ecology. “
