    tuna is a wonderful source of protein. If you want to eat tuna make sure and eat the albacore variety. It contains essential fatty acids.

    It's just negative publicity. And you can eat BOTH albacore and chunk light as they BOTH have EFA's.

    If you eat a lot of tuna I would advise against eating albacore tuna...it has something like 300% more mercury than chunk light.

    Your EFA's are things such as omega-3's and omega-6's

    Eating tuna is ok....just don't go overboard and eat like 3-4 cans a day and you'll be fine.....
