    I'm not sure on the exact amount, but 1 or 2 cans a day should be ok. I take that back.....I beleive the report I read said no more than 2-3 times a week. I'm not 100% on this.

    I used to eat one of those 5 serving cans a day.

    I got so burned out on it that I can't eat tuna anymore but the reason why they say not to consume too much is from the mercury exposure.

    Not really a major concern for an adult. That is mainly a concern for pregnant women. Unborn children are much more susceptible to exposure.

    if any body has this report I would be interested in reading it. I know that you should not eat fresh water fish from inland lakes no more than 2 times or maybe 1 time a month. because of the toxin levels in the water.

    i pasted this from that website you listed, thanks for the info bro.

    Mercury Exposure

    Mercury is a neurotoxic substance that can produce a wide range of health effects depending on the amount and timing of exposure. Mercury is a liquid at room temperature but vaporizes readily; in vapor form it is readily absorbed through the lungs. Repeated exposures to low levels of mercury vapor over long periods have been associated with tremors, irritability, impulsiveness, drowsiness, impaired memory, and sleep disturbances. These effects may occur at lower levels of exposure in children than adults.

    When mercury attaches to an organic molecule, it may be absorbed into the body through the digestive tract. Methylmercury, which is produced naturally by certain bacteria, is such a molecule. It can cross the placenta and enter the brain, causing severe brain damage in fetuses. High mercury levels in fish consumed by pregnant women have been linked to severe brain damage and cerebral palsy in newborns.

    Children are exposed to mercury primarily from eating contaminated fish. However, children eating soil contaminated with mercury or accidental exposures to mercury also have been documented.
