Man killed by Tuna ? ?

So I LOVE canned tuna b/c:

1. It is ridiculously cheap
2. It is very low in fat (only 1.5 g omega-3) per can!
3. It is high in protein (32.5 g)!
4. no carbs
5. hot sauce pairs nice and adds no calories while making it possible to eat straight. (I know..weird)

But I eat up to 12 cans a week. I have heard rumors that this is going to kill me b/c of mercury, but I can't find RELIABLE data. Please tell me that this is not true and make my day!...

Hi there,

I know that you're most likely not Canadian, but the link below talks about fish, and the amount they recommend that you should eat/limit.

Hopefully this will be of some help.

other factors you may want to consider

As pelagic carnivores go, albacore is also an okay choice from the point of view of sustainability. It matures early and spawns prolifically, which puts it at less risk of overfishing than fish like bluefin tuna. However, the longlines used to catch it also sometimes catch sea turtles and other endangered species. If this is a concern to you, here is a site that gives information about various food fish:
