Mercury in Fish: The Lowdown
We've always known there were high levels of mercury in some fish. But new studies show that in America, mercury levels are significant in all fish nowadays. What does this mean for our health?
The latest studies by the EPA showed almost all fish tested had at least trace amounts of mercury, and about 1 in 4 had more than is considered safe. This means we have to be very careful about which fish we eat, because mercury poisoning can have serious health effects. See the article below for more details. And since the cause seems to be manmade pollution, this is yet another way in which we are ruining our own planet, another wake-up call about the need to change our lifestyle and change our relationship with the planet.
Also this means maybe we should have believed Jeremy Piven after all, when he said he was in the hospital for mercury poisoning after eating sushi, and we all thought it was just for a drug problem?
