    which tuna is mercury free?

    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.

    Yup, chunk light has lower levels, but there is no mercury free tuna.

    Maybe some "organic" "health" brand from somewhere like WholeFoods?

    I'm just guessing here.

    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

    I ignored the mercury warning for a couple of years. I ended up suffering from chronic mercury poisoning, which is no fun, and takes years to recover from. If you eat NO other seafood, at 150 lbs., I would recommend five cans per week at most. If you do, less than that.

    I remember reading that White Tuna has the most amount of mercury.
