“However, by salting fish to preserve it, this also causes carcinogenic by-products to be produced, which can lead to cancer in humans.”

A carcinogen is an agent with the capacity to cause cancer in humans.

According to Mr Abdeh, other foods that are highly salted, smoked or pickled as a means of preservation are also a cancer risk.

“The body converts them into N-nitroso, which is a compound linked to a greater risk of cancer. Smoked meats absorb tar, which is a carcinogen, while pickled and salted foods both have a high salt content, which is linked to stomach and colon cancer.”
