Is it dangerous to combine salmon and spinach?

The combination of salmon and spinach is not more unhealthy than other combinations of fish and leafy vegetables.

Until recently the combination of fish and leafy vegetables, such as spinach, was considered not healthy, due to the formation of nitrosamines. New research has shown that the concentrations of possible toxic nitrosamines is not as high as assumed. The combination of fish and leafy vegetables is no longer considered unhealthy.

Also in epidemiological studies (studies among the human population) no effect between fish and leafy vegetables and cancer has been observed. is an initiative of Stichting Food-Info, The Netherlands
