How safe is your sushi?

Even if you’re not pregnant, you have to be worried about toxic mercury levels in fish. Mercury is present in raw fish, like sushi, and canned fish, like tuna. High mercury content affects the nervous system and renal system, and diminishes the cardiovascular benefits of fish consumption, so eating fish may not benefit your health after all. So how safe is your sushi? More and more, it’s safe to assume your fish is polluted.
