New guidelines for safer fish consumption, will these be the last?

The Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency recently put out new guidelines regarding fish consumption that includes this handy infographic showing which fish have less mercury (that’s the interpretation of healthy, or best choices, here).

The chart is aimed especially at pregnant women and parents but we all should be aware of mercury content in the fish we eat. The FDA and others position fish as a healthier alternative to fatty meats, but mercury content is the wild card here that throws a wrench into all of that.

So be aware of where your favorite fish is on this chart.

One wonders if either agency will be doing anything like this under the new Trump Administration which has criticized the EPA already for too much meddling in business.

Unfortunately, healthy eating and nutrition became a political football during the Obama administration when it came to school lunch guidelines.

Figuring out how to eat healthy should be above politics, but sadly it is not.
