Fish and Mercury
While it's absolutely critical for you to get those omega-3 oils into your body on a regular basis, it's also important to do this in moderation. Many fish do have small amounts of mercury in them.

Your body can naturally process that mercury when taken in small doses. However, if you were to embark on a diet of all tuna fish, all the time, your body would be less happy with you.

Most doctors recommend eating one to two servings a fish a week - but not twenty servings of fish.
