My problem is that yea people eat the goldies (I know people who have as well) but it only takes 1 time to eat one with TB before you are seriously ill or dead.
I wonder if this is true? Assuming that sushi is often raw wild caught fish and assuming that TB exsists in the wild...wouldn't we have people dropping dead from fish TB after eating sushi? Especially since, and forgive me if I'm wrong here since I've never had sushi, but isn't it often SW
fish sushi is made of? What I gathered from my research when I dealt with what I thought was TB, is that mycobacterium marinarum is the strain that is dangerous to humans which is the SW
strain. Your chances of becoming infected with fish TB are so extremely low, and even lower if you're only dealing with FW
. Can't say if that's true for sure..just what I read.
