hi there, I have been researching nutrition for more than 2 years now and a topic that keeps coming up is fish and mercury content so I deceided to do a chemistry report on it. I know how often this topic is brought up at this forum so I was wondering if anyone out there can give me links to research sources (like reports or scientific studies) on the following topics:
What causes the mercury content in fish
Which fish have the highest and lowest amounts of mercury and why
how much tuna can a person eat a day
what can reverse the effects of mercury poisoning.
does raw fish have more mercury than cooked fish
I would really appreciate if someone could also provide me with a link to a list of all the edible fish and their mercury content.
I want this to be a credible report and I appreciate any information given
Thank You
