canned tuna and mercury

"If it's not one thing, it's another. A recent Finnish study found that eating mercury-filled fish might undo any heart-health benefit of the omega-3 fatty acids it provides. Scientists tracked the diets of 1,871 men for 14 years and found that those who ate the most fish had higher mercury levels and were 60 to 70 percent more likely to develop heart disease. Mercury impairs arterial flexibility. To avoid it, reel in the right kind of fish. "Salmon are low in mercury because they eat mainly plankton, not other fish," says study author Jyrki Virtanen, Ph.D., R.D. Cod and whitefish are also light in the heavy metal."
I can not even imagine eating 5 cans a week. I rarely eat it mainly because chicken is cheaper and beef tastes better.

I still think it's horse **** how they downsized the cans though. Starkist solid white albacore (canned in water) for me. I used to eat the low sodium bumblebee albacore, but it is more expensive, and also very dry once the water is drained.

hmmm why would canned salmon mercury levels be so low compared to fresh salmon. If those stats are right canned salmon is the way to go if you can find it cheap enough. im going to price my local costco and see what it would run me
