Top 10 Reasons Not to Eat Shrimp
Yep everyone this is to tell 10 reasons NOT to eat shrimp (or prawns as we call it here in aus.)
1. Poop Cocktail
During cleaning, shrimp have their legs torn off and are decapitated and disemboweled. As their bowels are ripped out, poop spills out and often gets all over the shrimp
What the hell? the poop is possibly removed so you wouldent have to taste crap! you idiot!
2. Extra SkinShrimp are bottom dwellers who feed on parasites and skin that they pick off dead animals. This means that every mouthful of scampi you eat comes with digested parasites and dead skin.
Oh my bloody god!! we all have skin that shreds! and they need to live on dead skin!
3. Juiced JambalayaMost of the shrimp consumed comes from places that have no restrictions on traces of illegal contaminants such as dioxins, PCBs, and other banned chemicals or on pumping the shrimp full of hormones and antibiotics!
Then clean them you dumbasses!!
4. Dolphin-Safe Shrimp?Trawling is taking a toll on the legions of wild creatures, including dolphins, who make the sea their home. Nets don't discriminate.
Who cares about dolphins? cuz i don't!
5. Farming Destroys Fish TooShrimp farming is fatal to fish! Because it takes up to 3 pounds of wild-caught fish to feed and produce a single pound of farmed shrimp, shrimp farming is causing fish populations to plummet
6. Slave LaborAlmost all shrimp farms and shrimp processing plants are located in developing countries, where workers are forced to work long hours for minimal pay. Eating meat supports unethical employers!
Are you trying to say that meat eaters are bad people?! im a meat eater thank you very much!
7. Too Neat to Eat!With more than 2,500 species of shrimp, scientists are just beginning to scratch the surface of these fascinating animals' largely unknown behavioral characteristics
Thats still plenty of shrimps! its not like there 50 left! not to mention that they breed too!
8. Cholesterol BombsWith a whopping 152 milligrams of cholesterol per 100-gram serving of shrimp (four or five shrimp), just two servings would put you over the daily recommended allowance of 300 milligrams of cholesterol!
9. Bad KarmaMany major world religions, including Judaism, treat shrimp as "dirty meat." If you're hell-bent on good karma, better ditch the shrimp.
Bad karma wtf?!
10. Shrimply Fantastic Faux!Forget the "reel deal"! More and more sham shrimp are making their way onto restaurant menus. You can also trawl the frozen-food section of your local supermarket or specialty store to find faux shrimp and dozens of other mock meats.
If you're fishing for a heart-smart diet that is healthy, fish-friendly, and good for the environment, a vegetarian diet is the perfect catch. Plant-based diets have proved to actually reverse heart disease and reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
YOU CAN'T STOP PEOPLE FROM FROM COOKING SHRIMP YOU IDIOT!
This is terrible! not to mention the comments OH GOD the comments! look at them!

SHRIMP ARE LIVING CREATURES AND LIKE ANY OTHER CREATURE I THINK IT'S TERRIBLE TO KILL THEM FOR FOOD. THEY SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR FOOD COMSUPMTION AND SHOULD BE LEFT ALONE TO LIVE THEIR LITTLE LIVES. WHY CAN'T PEOPLE SEE PASS THE FACT THAT ANIMALS, MAMMALS ETC ARE NOT OURS TO EAT OR ABUSE. PLEASE LEAVE THEM ALONE, EAT HEALTHY, EAT VEGGIES!
