National Seafood Month
Fish and Health
The most recent Dietary Guidelines recommend that most adults eat fish twice per week.
Fish offer a unique combination of protein and beneficial fats that has been linked with lower risk of heart disease and improved brain development in babies.
Certain fish, however, have been found to contain higher than recommended levels of the toxic metal methyl mercury, and shouldn't be eaten frequently.
Varying the type of seafood you eat can help reduce your chances of taking in too much mercury.
