Can 7 month baby take salmon fish?

Can 7 month baby take salmon fish?

Yes: Fish is one of the top eight allergenic foods, and experts used to advise parents to wait until their baby's first birthday before introducing it. That advice has now changed.

What food, other than berries, can help to reduce the cancer cell, as my dad's cancer cell increases from 0.02 to 0.11? Is it because of salmon fish?
