Tuna and Mercury
I just got your baby 411 as a christmas present and I was reading the little section that says which fish NOT to eat when breastfeeding. The old FDA list of fish to avoid:
But, not Tuna. I saw a Bill Moyer's NOW special awhile back that exposed the tuna industry's influence on the FDA and thus Tuna's NOT being listed.
Tuna should REALLY be on that list in the 411 book. I hope the authors will update the next version of their book with this info, even if the FDA won't update their list.
Thanks for listening,
RE: Tuna and Mercury
From what I read, albacore tuna or fresh tuna steaks are the worst. That plain old chunk tuna in the can in moderation is okay due to the processing it goes through.
