More on seafood mercury risks

Just when you thought it was safe to eat seafood...pregnant women who eat more seafood have elevated mercury in their blood, putting their babies at risk.

Most women who ate seafood 3 times per week or more had unsafe mercury levels, according to a study of women in Taipei. Few details were offered in the Taipei Times news article, but the details are likely to be very important. What kind of fish? Caught where? Etc.
The mercury struggle goes on.
