Eating a can of tuna once a week is equivalent to living with how many mercury-containing amalgam tooth fillings?
Amalgam Fillings vs. Canned Tuna, 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 ratings
Because mercury can be so dangerous, concern has been raised about amalgam fillings, the silvery cavity fillings in our teeth, because they do contain mercury and release a certain amount every day. Eating just a single can of tuna a week, is the equivalent to having how many mercury-containing fillings in our teeth, day in and day out?
Less than 5, 5-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-25, or more than 25? Now keep I mind, you only have 32 teeth.
One can a week, is like living with, 29 mercury-containing fillings. I don’t know if you remember those old James Bond flicks, but basically that means looking like this.
