Is This Fish Safe to Eat?

Mercury in Seafood

Science is bringing new technology to our docks, retail stores and our home to soon be able to know with more assurance that the fish we have to eat is safe.

Safe means that mercury levels can be tested to parts per million (ppm) which doesn't sound like much, but the FDA has set levels of 1.0 ppm for fish that cannot be sold.

It's interesting and a bit disconcerting to realize exactly how often we eat food that we really have no idea where it comes from, and more exactly what potentially toxic items are in it.  The real danger is that most of the toxicity effects come from the cumulative ingestion of these elements in our bodies.

The good news is that grocery chains, and restaurants are starting to use technology, from Safe Harbor that is available do something about it.  For the mean time, look, ask and act based on what you can find out.  The certification is coming.  Meanwhile be careful out there!
