Mercola's newsletter that comes several times a week free has a lot of good info. I don't always have time to read it - but always learn some more.
Don't know any longer what is worse -
the mercury in the mouth, in the brain, or in fish from everywhere......

But it's better to be aware and protect ourselves.

Take care.

Not only fish...

Its Raining Mercury
Posted by Dr. Mercola | September 24 2000 | 2,772 views

Rain and snow falling on the New England states has been found to contain levels of mercury that far exceed what the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers safe for people, aquatic life and wildlife in surface waters, concludes a new report released today by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF).

I'm not sure we can really avoid it if it's in the air & water, as well. This was 10 years ago...

That is the reason we have decided to be on a lifelong detox. I highly recommend it. We have dug the stuff out of the ground and we will be meeting it again and again.

Take care.

I know that the "authorities" go up and down the coast here (seems we get it in the wind from other places) not just fish, rain and snow - anyway....

they are busy climbing trees to test baby eagles for mercury toxicity along the coast of Maine.

I'm all for eagles but just mention mercury toxicity to your PCP and watch what happens. You might be better of being an eagle!!

Lifelong detox for sure. Biogolo Detox from Germany bigz - Bioray has some good products as well. Not Gigi but I have a hunch that is what she will come back with.

I love tuna fish also. [Frown]

I guess I'm just going to have to keep taking metal free, because I'm not giving up tuna.

I love it too! Haven't had it in a long time, because of what I have read here.

However, I don't think it would hurt to eat it once in a while.

I haven't eaten tuna for a while. Maybe once every so often some sushi or seared tuna coated in peppercorns with some nice sauce...

They posted a sign near the tuna in Whole Foods to warn people - pregnant women, children. I thought to myself - how could I eat something with a warning sign in the freakin' supermarket...?

It's all pretty bad... It's all a crap shoot. I passed up the wild caught Gulf Coast shrimp today. Who knows what may be in that? How sad.

There are also warnings in the stores about lead in balsamic and red wine vinegars in California, so there are two other things that you shouldn't eat if you want to avoid lead.

I think sardines are one of the safer fish you can eat, but maybe I'm wrong. Anyone?

Am I missing something here? The article is from 2002? I agree that Mercola has some interesting info, but isn't this kind of old news?

Just like a lot of things in our lives, people try to be sneaky about the truth. I think most of us realize that mercury has been an issue in fish for awhile. I'm not sure it's worth cutting back on canned tuna unless there is some pressing evidence to back it all up. More recent evidence.

The smaller the fish, the less mercury. Sardines are supposed to have less mercury. I know I read something about this one time, something about smaller fish being able to process mercury through their bodies quicker from their high metabolism (?)

I've also read that all lakes & streams are contaminated with mercury in the US - so much for fishing...

It's not getting lower over time.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium in CA keeps fish watch and a regularly updated list of fish and areas contaminated, and best current fish selections.

Great resource.
