Here's the thing, I hate fish but I LOVE New England Clam Chowder. My doctor said other fish is okay but failed to mention my New England Clam Chowder. This sounds so fat but can I eat it?

  • I think so.. look at where the clams come from. The fear is mercury content.

  • here's what I found:
    Raw Shellfish: The majority of seafood-borne illness is caused by undercooked shellfish, which include oysters, clams, and mussels. Cooking helps prevent some types of infection, but it does not prevent the algae-related infections that are associated with red tides. Raw shellfish pose a concern for everybody, and they should be avoided altogether during pregnancy.
