Sushi from 5 of the 20 places had mercury levels so high that the Food and Drug Administration could take legal action to remove the fish from the market....
A number of studies have found high blood mercury levels in people eating a diet rich in seafood. According to a 2007 survey by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the average level of mercury in New Yorkers? blood is three times higher than the national average. The report found especially high levels among Asian New Yorkers, especially foreign-born Chinese, and people with high incomes. The report noted that Asians tend to eat more seafood, and it speculated that wealthier people favored fish, like swordfish and bluefin tuna, that happen to have higher mercury levels.

I knew fish was bad for you since I was a little kid.

It takes up alot of your time.

You think about it all the time.

You spend stupid amounts of money on equipment, bait, tackle and when fish really are bad,

you buy a boat

"Over the past several years, studies have suggested that mercury may also cause health problems for adults, including an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and neurological symptoms."

The article didn't mention that those same Chinese born people with the high levels of mercury in their blood also have the lowest rates of afore mentioned health problems. Next year it will be good for you again.
