As a way of counteracting some of the work by Environmental Working Group, the Sea Turtle Restoration Project, and Oceana to inform consumers about the health risks of consuming too much seafood, a new website was just launched called HowMuchFish.com, which tells you how much mercury-laden tuna, salmon, and shrimp you can ‘safely’ consume.
Although it might not be obvious at first glance, HowMuchFish.com is sponsored by the Center for Consumer Freedom — “a nonprofit coalition of restaurants, food companies, and consumers working together to promote personal responsibility”. Check out their website claiming to mythbust the studies demonstrating health effects of high fructose corn syrup, high meat intake, and now seafood. This is a group of people who profit from seafood sales. When it comes to seafood and its effect on your health, is this really a group you would trust?
