    Safe to eat canned tuna how often?

    I heard that we should not eat more than two cans of tuna a week due to mercury buildup in our system.

    Is this true?

    If so, it makes it tough for me because on a lean bodybuilding diet, I can eat at least a can of tuna every day or every other day.

    Is this something I should worry about?

    Many people eat at least 1 can of tuna a day. Your body should be fine, the Mercury should not be harmful.

    make sure your eating chunk light tuna...that's on the approved list to eat everyday. Other tunas you can't...

    Thanks that helps a lot. I will look for "Chunk Light Tuna"....although at the moment I don't know how that is different from other tuna, I am sure I will see it on the shelf.

    Chunk light tuna is harvested at an earlier age than albacore (those are two canned tuna, commonly), and chunk light has about 33% the mercury content of albacore. I believe chunk light has .12 parts per million mercury, while albacore is .35 PPM. That information is from the source listed below.

    Perfect! I hate albacore anyway, it is too dry. And the chunk light stuff is CHEAP. Perfect.

    Cool

    Many guys here have one or more cans a day. There's a lot of threads on it, just search for tuna + mercury.

    Here's another link to an FDA article on mercury levels in fish:

    http://www.fda.gov/fdac/reprints/mercury.html

    Usually I'll have one 6 oz can/day and get the rest of my protein from chicken, turkey, eggs, cottage cheese, whey, & skim milk.

    Yeah these threads are getting out of hand. I would really like to know the answer to this, since I've heard that unless you're a women that's pregnant don't worry about mercury poisoning - and that's only with like shark, swordfish, etc. I mean it's not that big a deal I'll drop my albacore and just stick to chunk light, but whatever.
    I've still got a lot to learn.
