I just found out that the FDA has suggested limitations on amounts of fish people should eat, especially for young children and pregnant women b/c all the mercury in fish can harm the brain. below is a list of what is most likely to contain mercury. The new FDA guidelines still maintain that fish "can be important parts of a healthy and balanced diet."

Also, "On the other hand, the guidelines suggest eating up to two meals a week, totaling 12 ounces, of fish known to be low in mercury such as shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock and catfish."

i eat a lot more than 2 fish meals a week, more like 5 cans of tuna a week and some salmon thrown in as well. hope my brain survives this. what do you, should i cut down on the tuna and eat more lamb, turkey and beef instead?
