A WOMAN WALKS PAST A SHARKS FIN RESTAURANT IN BANGKOK.
A Thai woman strolls past a Bangkok sharks' fin restaurant window displaying the popular delicacy July 3, 2001. The international environment watchdog group "Wild Aid" released a report on Tuesday warning that sharks' fins sold throughout Asia and the rest of the world contained dangerously high levels of mercury. Sharks are more dangerous to humans dead than alive claims Wild Aid, who warned that Asia's love affair with soup made from sharks' fins poses serious health risks, with levels of the poisonous heavy metal as high as 42 times the quantity acceptable to humans.
