Mercury poisoning

I only recently heard one can get mercury poisoning from eating too much fish which worried me a little as I eat fish around 15 times a week – is this likely to cause me any harm? If I have to cut down I’m not sure what I’m going to replace it with. Thanks.

Bingo! :)

I would say 15 times a week is pretty accurate. The problem is if I need to cut down I'm not sure what I will replace it with as I have chicken around 10 times a week plus pork a couple of times. I already have quite a lot of beans and nuts so they aren't an option either.

Years ago there was a perceived problem in Japan where they do eat a large amount of fish.
If you start to get taller in the hot summer months then you have too much mercury in your system ;)

For more on the same, try the New scientist website and type Mercury in fish into the search facility.

Lots of food for thought! (Pun so intended)

One example here

Bon appetite. :D
