    i had to get a blood/urine test.. then i just had to stop eating fish for a week and do a 24 hour urine analysis where i had to piss in jugs for 24 hours straight and keep them cold the whole time.. now i gotta go get more blood work done cause of this shit. and i still can't eat fish. fml

    :rofl: funniest part is the doctor has never encountered this before. he is learning as we go along and lets me know when he learns new stuff. i'm guessing/hoping this is all very precautionary

    I eat 2-3 cans every day. I thought that the canned tuna like solid white albacore doesn't have much mercury because it's young or something like that.

    Hope you're right, I only eat albacore.. I can't stand eating chunk light over and over, but albacore is fine.

    Solid white albacore in water, 4 cans a week. Shit.

    Albacore:

    According to FDA health standards, you can safely eat 8.6 ounces of Albacore tuna per week (assuming that every can of tuna has an average amount of mercury*). That's 1 and a half cans of tuna. Albacore tuna has three times as much mercury as light tuna.
    Light Tuna:

    According to FDA health standards, you can safely eat 25.1 ounces of Light tuna tuna per week (assuming that every can of tuna has an average amount of mercury*). That's 4 cans of tuna.




    ugh, been eating a can a day for years

    Be careful. I stopped eating canned tuna so much after hearing about rising toxicities in the fish.

    Auntie is a nurse practitioner, she diagnosed a patient with mercury poison. He came in to the doctors because he was shaking uncontrollable. He ate a can of tuna every day for cpl years.... So when you get Parkinsons's, I'd probably cut back on the tuna.

    Damnit.. I love tuna. Someone should start a business where they raise tuna in purified water.

    yet millions and millions of people across the world eat fish as their primary protein source and mercury poisoning does not seem to be a serious problem... INTERESTING

    Albacore has more mercury but it doesn't taste like cat food, so it's your choice

    Pretty sure that Asians have problems with stomach cancer because of the amount of fish that they eat.
