    I was just making a tuna sandwich, and was thinking if I could stand it, I could eat 5 cans and get almost all my protein from food. Anyone ever lived off tuna for a while? I just don't like cooking at all, I'm almost 30 and I don't think I'll ever like it! But I do like to eat

    ive purchased a good amount of tuna lately, and id have to say, more than 2 cans a day would be absolutely disgusting. i can barely get the second can down

    i also read on this board that you shouldnt consume too many cans a day due to high levels of mercury?

    forgot who said it

    There is alot of warning lately because of the mercury in the tuna. Experts recomend not to eat more than one a week!
    However, being the Tuna Master's Assistant, and having gone to Tuna University, i would say you can eat more, just not every day, take a couple of days away from tuna once in a while, just to be safe.

    Frankster,

    Do you eat tuna every other day or something?
    and where does the mercury come from? that may be a naive question, but its a question right? hehe
    thanks

    For a barbeque back when i was in high school, my mom made this huge batch of tuna fish sandwich filler, out of basically tuna, celery, hot sauce, and a tiny bit of olive oil. She made it for 16 people; used eight cans of tuna. it rained that day. We canceled the barbeque. I ate the whole bowl.

    And that was my little story.

    i believe the albacore tuna has less mercury in it.

    Tuna gives me bad breath for a while. People ask if i was eating it an hour later...

    White Albacore tuna (smaller variety) is low in mercury but more expensive. 2 cans per day should be max.

    Its not wise to consume same food in huge quantities. Food allergy or indigestion may result. And you would lack some nutrients as well because you are missing other food.

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I'm pretty sure the mercury is a result from pollution in the oceans.

    Here's an article from January 15, 2001:

    The mercury comes from the oceans!!

    The bigger the tuna the more mercury they will have in them. And since the tuna that is used from our consumption is large, we get the shaft!!

    i guess i should state that i actually dont mind tuna too much, the trick is to blank out the poon smell. i usually use bbq sauce, lemon, mustard, or hot sauce.
