Mercury Poisoning: Tuna

Mercury Poisoning: TunaThe fact that mercury poisoning and tuna’s consumption are close related is not a secret, but do you know how much tuna you need to eat to put your health in danger?

Factoid Eating just six pieces of tuna sushi during the week may put you over the safe limit for mercury established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Solution You can still enjoy tuna sushi once in a while, but mercury poisoning is a real concern, so do not order it every week. If you cannot live without eating sushi every week, studies show that small fish is not contaminated with mercury. Keep that in mind next time you are at a sushi restaurant.
