Adventures of the Toxic Tuna

More news about mercury contamination in tuna. In Canada, the CBC conducted an investigative report to determine how much tuna was on the shelves that exceeded government limits on mercury. They found that about 13% of canned, albacore tuna exceed the 0.5ppm guidelines.

Ironically, late last week they had a news story about how eating fish during pregnancy increases the intelligence of the child.

No mention is made as to the source of the mercury contamination in fish.

With all the reports, studies, investigations and regulations it is becoming impossible to eat anything. Why don't we just try to reduce the pollution, chemicals in the environment and processing of food so we can eat?
