canned tuna and mercury

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. When I'm cutting, I eat it religiously.


  2. Albacore has more mercury than Chunk Light. http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~frf/sea-mehg.html

    0.353 vs. 0.118 , talking triple the Mercury levels.

    I had heard that also. That is unfortunate. Albacore tastes so much better.

    Yeah I found that out also It does taste a bit better, but it's a good thing I don't eat tuna, but once, maybe twice a week.

  5. 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

    Oddly enough it is the more expensive albacore that has a higher mercury content! ha I have read a lot and most top nutritionists and chemists say that its nothin to worry about. You could alwasy look into chelation therapy to reduce levels of toxic metals after every bulk

  9. found some quality canned salmon at costco for 1.60 a can. i can handle that. With whole wheat pasta totaling at under 3 dollars a meal is not bad
