FROZEN FISH IS INFERIOR IN TASTE

Nowadays, fishes are frozen directly the moment they are caught from the sea and probably you will be getting frozen sushi in your plate but it has nothing to with freshness and taste.

In layman terms, sushi can be healthy or unhealthy. It is totally an individual opinion whilst taking various factors into consideration like how sushi has been prepared, the accompaniment with the sushi you are indulging with.

 

OPINIONS ARE ALWAYS BASED ON CIRCUMSTANCES

Everyone wants to get an insight about if the ‘X’ thing is bad for you and getting a candid ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer can really form a stereotypical opinion about certain things.

Having a black and white opinion without considering and overlooking the subtleties, qualifiers, ground zero or middle ground of a certain thing can make things to go for a nosedive.

Let’s take a simple example of celery. It is a known fact that celery is high in fiber content and thus highly recommended to consume every day.

On the contrary, if you deep fry the celery with lard and add some salt and vinegar, it would hinder the normal functioning of your digestive system owing to the fatty acids.
