Shark cartilage may contain toxin linked to Alzheimer's, ALS

If the cruelty involved in obtaining it isn't reason enough: Shark cartilage, a supplement hyped for purported use as a cancer preventive, joint-health aid, and other unsubstantiated health claims, "may contain a neurotoxin that has been linked with Alzheimer’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease."


  1. Hopefully this information counters the asinine belief that sharkfin soup is:
    A.  Awesome
    B.  Works like Viagra… only better.

    Maybe we should gene splice this toxin into Tiger Penises and Rhinoceros horns as well.

  2. I can’t wait to see the class action lawsuit commercials for this! “Have you or your loved ones developed Alzheimer’s after eating shark cartilage? Call Sam!”

  3. But, But, My holistic health food store didn’t tell me that!  I’d better try some of the medicinal raspberries to cure the alzhiemers disease that I’m sure to get next.

  4.  PattonReyna is actually the pseudonym for “dishwasher.”  A rather computer-saavy dishwasher. And if they’re from New York, is’s “dishwasha.”

  5. Huh. Shark used to be cheap meat in the early ’80s, Pop used to marinade it in soy sauce. I kinda liked it. I guess you’re old when everything you like will cause you harm.

  6. So in addition to creating 20 foot long supersharks which destroyed an entire marine science station, those Deep Blue Sea people were actually CAUSING alzheimers rather than curing it.   Stupid scientists.
