Should I worry about the mercury in the fish I eat?
#4
On the one hand, we’re supposed to be eating more of it because it’s so good for you. Seafood is a good source of protein and important nutrients like selenium, iron, and zinc. The oils found in fish have unique benefits as well. Fish (and fish oils) are good for your heart, your brain, and even your mood. People who eat more fish live longer, healthier lives.The very latest research suggests that fish oil may even help slow the aging process. Mercury is a nerve poison. Fish are exposed to mercury the same way we are: through the foods they eat and exposure to environmental pollution. Some types of fish contain only trace amounts of mercury; others have a lot more. So we really have to pay attention to the amount of fish we eat.
