    Tuna & mercury






    Should you really be concerned about the mercury in your tuna? I just read ronalds reply in the thread "what you mix with it".. and he mentioned that albacore had more mercury than regular light tuna... Ok,, well I eat albacore tuna every day ( well almost - usually 4 days a week) .

    Should I not be?? What are the statistics? Does anyone know?

    Hey guy's isn't it the aluminum content from canned tuna and fish sources that too much is bad for you? It's just what i heard i don't take it to heart but i stick to 1-2 of any canned food a day!

    Not true.........Pregnant women need to be very careful but mercury is going to effect a healthy male just as much as a healthy female.

    YES the mercury in tuna is true.You should cut down on your tuna intake.The amount should be 1-2 times aweek.Also stay away from shark,sword,yellow fin,blue fin,and false abicore.Try cod,whiteing,monk(goosefish family) trout(rainbow and saltwalter).I do have working knowledge for this matter,3 generation waterman

    True Story,

    Aluminum can's/Packaging causes CJD, basically mad cow disease.


    In 20-30 years, CJD cases will rise 100,000% percent.

    I have 2 cans a week. I eat the light kind. I guess it is younger tuna. According the cans, the light actually has more protein.

    I heard that the aluminum content from the canned tin is bad for you, and you should only have tinned food such as tuna, 3-4 time's a week.

    I'm just wondering is this true?

    i eat tuna 1-2 times a day, everyday, also kidney beans (from the can), and other canned stuff (tomatoes, chick peas, other fish) on a regular basis, so do the vast majority of the british population i would have thought, yet i can't say i know one person personally that has got mercury poisioning

    how would you even know if you had it? vomitting n' stuff?

    No, if you are worried about symtoms of aluminum which is converted directly into prion protiens which are what eat away at your brian also known as CJD, the symptons are very easy to tell.


    First symptom is DEATH.
