I usually rock 2 little cans a day (easy to eat work and cheap).

One can a day, in olive oil, loaded with Tabassco. I usually eat it with wheat crackers but AntonG420 has just put an end to that.

I'm only doing this because the kitchen is going to be completed with the remodel on Friday, New Year's Eve, and I can FINALLY cook chicken again
How much mercury is in each can of Albacore tuna in water (Starkist)?
Luckily, it's only short term, and very inexpensive when bought in bulk.

Canned tuna is safe and canned light meat tuna is listed on the EPA/FDA advisory as one of the fish that has very low levels of methylmercury. The trace levels of methylmercury found in canned tuna are far below the 1.0 parts per million (ppm) standard the FDA has set as safe. FDA testing has shown that canned light meat tuna has an average of 0.1 parts per million (ppm) and that Albacore (white meat) tuna has an average of 0.35 ppm. StarKist has appropriate testing procedures in place to ensure that both our light meat canned and white meat canned tuna are well below the FDA limit of 1 ppm.
For more information, go to the FDA's website at www.fda.gov or call the FDA Center for Food Safety Information Line at 1-888-SAFEFOOD.

I hear that if you're going the canned salmon route, wild caught is better...but first of all I can't find any and second of all, I just don't care! I eat anywhere from 1-3 cans of tuna a day. It's awesome to dip wheat thins in, and awesome in a whole wheat wrap with some fresh veggies thrown in the mix.

I usually eat between 1 and 2 cans a day. I also take about 1,800mg of NAC a day in hopes of a little heavy metal chelation keeping that mercury at bay.
