if the regular tuna i buy was mercury free, i could get all the protein i need per day(1g per lb) for only $3. It isnt however, and seeing as the recomended weekly allowance is only 2 cans, I feel like i could be on to something cheap and effective. do you guys ignore the mercury warning or do you get mercury free tuna, and if so, where?

I don't believe there's a "mercury-free" tuna, however light tuna has lower levels than albacore/bluefin does.eating out? a nutritional guide to popular restaurants and fast food!

chunk lite tuna in water has 1/3 the mercury amount then the albacore tuna can...
i think 1 a day wont kill u, altho sometimes before i've eaten 10+ cans in a week... i dont think i'm turning blue or growing a third eye yet
