Tilapia was recently discovered to be one of the unhealthiest forms of seafood because it is farm-raised. It's been compared to bacon and said to be worse for your health than the breakfast meat. In fact, research has found that it may cause more inflammation in the body that can lead to arthritis, asthma, and heart disease.
