    completely precautionary, have no symptoms or anything i just eat a shitload of fish so i figured it couldn't hurt to check it out. doctor called me a couple days ago said they actually came back high. :noes:

    he said normal seafood eater level is 10 (i don't know what unit of measure, probably ppm), and mine was 29. i asked what a dangerous level is he said 40 would start to be a worry but some people are over 100.

    so now i can't eat fish for a few days and i have to go for a different test. does anyone who has gotten checked know what their level was? i feel like 29 isn't really high at all and this is totally precautionary.

    There was actually an article by Carlon Colker, MD, in last months Muscular Development

    You should check it out, it has some of the exact info you want. IIRC, Lou Feringo on the front.

    jeremy piven was doing some play or show or some dumb shit, i don't know all the details. rumor was that he wanted to get out of the contract but couldn't so colker (who is known infamously as a celebrity doctor/spokesperson who would bend the truth to get press coverage) came out and said he was treating piven for mercury poisoning and piven was unable to continue with the show because he was too sick.

    the general consensus was that it was all bullshit and that colker has no credibility. did the article seem legit or did it seem like alot of propoganda/press bs?

    Seemed legit, I'd check it out. Says he urged Piven to quit the show many times and that he wouldn't.

    word, i'll swing by a bookstore and give it a read. even if it was a press stunt the article might have actually been legit info.

    The part about piven was only part of it. He got off that topic pretty quick and on to the science behind what he said.

    unless I felt ill I would NEVER have gone in for a test like that. Mercury poisoning is the least of my worries. Fuck if I had it I would come here to brag about it! HEY GUYS I FINALLY GOT MERCURY POISONING!!!

    Rule 1) No breaking open thermometers. Mercury must come in fish form.

    When your Freddie Mercury level comes out high, then you need to worry.
