Fish, Mercury, and Nutrition: The Net Effects

Are you getting the omega-3s you need for brain development and a healthy heart? The selenium for good immune response and brain function? The vitamin D and calcium for strong bones? If you eat ocean fish, you get these benefits. Do you need to worry about mercury?
Fish really is brain food! Fish, Mercury, and Nutrition: The Net Effects presents the many benefits of eating ocean fish and the risk of mercury exposure for the population with the most to gain (or lose): unborn and young children. Pregnant and nursing moms will learn why two ocean fish meals a week during the critical window of development can safely give their babies lifelong benefits. The rest of the population also benefits by including ocean fish in their healthy diets.
