    Just did a little research on it because my dad was warning me not to eat more than two cans a week because of the mercury levels. But so far what I've come up with is that as long as I'm not a child aged 6 or under or a pregnant mother then I don't really have to watch out for it. I usually have 3-4 cans a week, and I know a lot of you guys have it at least daily. Should I even be slightly concerned or no?

    I use to eat 4 cans a day last year...I was perfectly healthy.

    I say if therre's no problem, why change it? If you start getting symptons then just stop :dunno:

    Yes. People here eat too much. There was WSJ article on the front page about it just a few days ago, too.

    There is a mineral supplement I believe that supposedly minimized the absorbtion of mercury in the system.

    unless you are a pregnant woman eating around 50 cans a day you won't have to worry about it.




    Unless you are a little faggot.
