Ivory Coast: Does smoking fish the traditional way cause cancer?

Ivory Coast is asking people to use modern methods to produce the smoked fish beloved by so many.

    Smoked fish is a popular food in many of West Africa's coastal communities.

    The traditional smoking process, though, produces substances known to cause cancer.

    In Ivory Coast, people are now being encouraged to use more modern and healthier methods.
