Nutrition Nuggets 6 - Tuna: How Much in a Week ?
Manage episode 358719088 series 3304654
This mini episode is taken from a question from a listener. "Is tuna safe to eat? It's the only fish I like"
Susan's question is a query that Sandra hears from clients and patients often, since there's so many mixed messages around tuna.
We delve in to a recent Consumer Reports' study that sheds light on some of the common brands of tuna, and their mercury levels, plus, discuss the benefits and risks of eating tuna.
Also, we discuss some populations more at risk of the mercury exposure that need more caution with eating tuna.
From the nutrition quality of tuna, and the importance of fish oils, to how much and how often people can include tuna and other fish in their diet, this episode is full of important information for consumers and some soul from Rob!:)
