So a few months back, my doc warned me that my mercury level was a bit higher than normal. That of course was totally not surprising given that I eat fish pretty much daily. I'm Japanese... it's in my blood, I guess literally. The task of trying to reduce my mercury level has been kind of daunting. I can say no to chicken and beef all day long, but fish is a completely different story. Luckily, I came across this handy mercury guide when I googled how high the mercury content is in salmon. Thank Buddha salmon is low on the charts! And thankfully I tend to shy away from eating anything that can eat me, since I don't want to go down that karmic road, so most of the really big fishies aren't in my diet anyways, except tuna. No more yellowtail hand rolls for me I guess. Insert giant frowny face here!
