Which fish is safest for you to eat? Consumer reports explains which fish are lowest in Mercury.
My friends and I all love sushi. I personally love most types of fish, including fresh Tuna as well as snapper. Many of you love fish as well and are well aware that fish needs to be part of our regular diets since certain nutrients are important for our health.
There has been a growing concern that certain types of fish have high amounts of mercury. Where does this mercury come from? Unfortunately, we have continued to pollute the oceans and Mercury is a byproduct of our activities that makes it through the small fish and plants into the larger fish and finally into the fish we eat.
Some fish are more prone to having higher levels of mercury, and Consumer Reports has done its homework on which fish are best for you and which ones need to be eaten in smaller quantities to avoid health problems associated with Mercury.
If you do not currently subscribe to Consumer Reports, you should. Their opinions are unbiased and they do not change opinions due to the whims of advertisers.
