tuna, whats all this i hear about murcury and is it all bollox

hey guys, basically during the week i pretty much stick to a strict diet of chicken and tuna, i get through around 15 cans of tuna a week n about the same in chicken! now this diet is working great and i love the food but people are more and more telling me that eating that much tined tuna is not good because of the the high amounts of murcury found in tuna! now what i want to know is, is this bollox or do they have a point cause i dont really wanna change my diet, its working a treat see!!

    Probably nothing serious. I mean if you can't eat as much tuna as you want what the hell can you eat.

    My guess is its like when they tried to scare people of egg yolks now that is out the window so will the mercury in tuna crap soon.

    Too much of anything can't be great for you mind try and get some variety.

    There is concern over this, expressed by the FSA.  The state oily fish tend to store mercury in the skin.

    Shark is an example which is proven to have high levels of mercury hence you should not eat too much.

    Tuna generally has less mercury in but 15 tins a week is a lot. The FSA states max 4 tins.

    when bulking i'd be close to 24 tins of tuna a week didnt have much effect on me

    tbf though i got mighty sick of them and eggs as well! totally gave myself a sickner of eggs and can barely eat them now! which is annoying as I know how good they are
