I love to eat fish and shellfish, but I’ve also read enough to know that eating some types of fish can be risky. There are many pollutants and contaminants in the lakes and oceans these days, but the one contaminant of greatest health concern is mercury poisoning.
Besides cooking fish on a regular basis at home, my husband and I like to go out for sushi quite often. So of course, I wanted to know once and for all which fish to eat and which fish to avoid.
Mercury poisoning is no joke. It’s particularly harmful to the fetus of pregnant women and to small children, but it also can have neurological effects on the rest of us.
Needless to say my interest was high when I began exploring this topic on the Web. I’m really happy I found the answers I needed to learn which fish to eat and which fish to avoid.
The article I’ve linked for you is the best one I found. I hope it will clear those murky waters for you too!
