Update on Mercury in Tuna: Group secretly tests mercury in tuna, swordfish.

“Tuna and swordfish collected from some California grocery stores and sushi restaurants contained mercury levels as much as three times the threshold that authorizes federal food regulators to pull seafood from shelves, according to a study by an environmental health group.”

  1. I like this your blog; lucky to have found you….update within one’s fingertips. I was impressed to learn that a group is secretly testing mercuric level in tuna because that’s the only way to get an independent result for comparison. I like the update; keep it up.

  2. Jalal…..I initially thot the issue of mercury in tuna was more of a conundrum until when you finally gave us this update. I rather go for nuts than tuna, farmed or wild salmon!

  3. Doc, I read all those postings on your blog and permit me to say that I enjoyed every piece of it. On the issue of getting Omega-3 from fish and fish related products and in addition to nuts and almonds, you could as well go for steak prepared from beef whose source is cow fed on green grass. It’s also an important source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Let’s play it safe!
