Studies of the neurobehavioral toxicity of mercury on children suggest that no level of mercury exposure can be considered safe, but pressure from the fish industry may be preventing safety limits from dropping further.
This is the second of my three-part video series on the latest on the risks of mercury in fish. For part one, see Hair Testing for Mercury Before Considering Pregnancy, and for part three, see Which Brand of Tuna Has the Most Mercury? I have a bunch of other videos on mercury, including fish contamination and its consequences. For example, see The Effect of Canned Tuna on Future Wages. And check out my other videos on undue industry influence on our food supply. One can also be exposed to lead though meat (Cannibalistic Feed Biomagnification), and dietary supplements (Some Ayurvedic Medicine Worse Than Lead Paint Exposure), and even protein powders too (Heavy Metals in Protein Powder Supplements).
