《半岛晨报》报道,市场上出售的黄花鱼、刀鱼大部分都经过染色,而染色用的粉末损害人体健康。

由于人们通常认为发黄的黄花鱼新鲜,一些小贩从批发市场进了黄花鱼后,通常都用黄粉将鱼洗一下再出售以增加销量。而这种黄粉被长期食用会对大脑产生影响,尤其是孕妇及婴幼儿等敏感人群。

而通常用来刷刀鱼的银粉就是平时刷暖气用的粉末,含有大量的铅,对人体的肝脏、肾脏等功能造成巨大伤害,对人的神经系统也有损伤。

Dyed Yellow Croakers and Sauries on sale

A majority of the Yellow Croakers and Sauries sold in the Chinese market have been dyed with a powder that is harmful to humans, the Peninsula Morning Post reports.

Since customers assume if the Croakers are yellow they should be fresh, some vendors dye the fish with a yellow powder after they buy them from wholesalers to boost sales. However, the powder can damage the brain if eaten often, especially in pregnant women and babies.

The silver powder used to dye Sauries is the same powder commonly used to paint radiators and contains large amounts of lead which can cause liver, kidney and nervous system damage.
