My doctor said no more than two servings per week.
Who knows? I stick to less than 5oz a week.
Millions of Japanese women will be horrified at your midwife's statement! (And they tend to birth lots and lots of healthy babies over there!) :)
my friends always debate this. They think fish can process mercury...and will eat it while pregnant. I don't buy it at all. There is way too much in the water ways for them to be able to handle it, and mercury doesn't belong in the human body. I don't eat canned tuna EVER while pregnant. Here's an article to read.
Quoting jellyphish:Predatorial fish like tuna have the highest amount of mercury, which is way we are warned to stay away from it. Albacore tuna has the highest amount of all the tunas (which is sad because albacore is the only actually dolphin-safe tuna).
Our digestive systems are able to process a lot of toxins out. As far as how safe it is, I donno, I don't personally believe any amount of mercury is safe for anyone ever, so I don't eat fish. But I can tell you it's got to be a lot safer than the vaccines those same drs want to inject our muscular systems with!
