Dear Reader
Sushi which involves eating raw fish is healthy from the point of view that fish is rich in high quality protein, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. However, raw fish contains a component that is called an anti-nutrient which can affect your vitamin B1 intake and one should, therefore, not overdo your intake of raw fish. In addition, the restaurant that serves this sushi should be of a high quality to ensure that the fish is fresh and that you do not develop gastrointestinal infections. Eating sushi occasionally as a treat at a good restaurant should not cause any problems.
