I've heard that eating too much tuna fish could be a bad thing? true, false? I was thinking about increasing my protein intake through more consumption of tuna. Is too much tuna bad?
I've heard that it can cause mercury poisoning---but I don't know for sure.

and yea tuna kicks ass.. i eat 2 cans a day cuz its hard to get that high of protein levels besides chugging 4 shakes when you live in a dorm.. next year when i move out it'll be bulk tuna from costco
I don't have time. I make time.
Ok, first off the only way you will get mercury poisening from Tuna is if the fish was rerieved from mercury rich waters. Even if there is trace amounts of mercury you would have to be eating a TON of tuna, probably two or three times what you are eating now in order to get poisoning. My boyfriend is an avid lifter and eats as much tuna as he can get (personally I hate the stuff- I love salmon) but perhaps a little variety wouldnt hurt. But anyway just to rest your nervousness, you would have to eat a ton more tuna than you are or eat contaminated tuna to get mercury poisening.
I say just keep going for it, but there are lots of other options for protein... Things such as beef, and other forms of fish.. Perhaps just to keep you from becoming sick of tuna you should try a little variety
eating too much tuna for a prolonged period of time does raise the mecury level in your blood but if once a month you take a week or soo off of tuna then youll be garenteed nothing to go wrong
Did you just read that T-Nation article? Oh yeah and alot of it has to do with the size of the fish... the big ones eat the smaller ones and so on.... the more little fish the big one eats the more mercury there is going to be in the big fish You are smart to eat salmon. I buy $3 cans of the pink salmon from alaska. 84grams of protien a can. Significantly less mercury.Originally Posted by Ruffian
