The link between fish consumption and neurobehavioral abnormalities in adults is likely related to mercury toxicity.

Mercury affects adults, too. Hair loss, memory loss, slurred speech. Here’s a case report of a guy who ate tuna every day—became so crazy he was thrown in a psych ward. Couldn’t even remember his name.

It’s not always this dramatic, though. Eating fish gives people subclinical neurobehavioral abnormalities—meaning you feel fine, you look fine, but if you’re actually put to the test, the performance of those who eat fish is significantly worse on a bunch of tests, like how fast you can tap your fingers. 

To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring watch the above video. This is just an approximation of the audio contributed by veganmontreal.
