Unsure of the mercury levels in some types of fish

Hi Alex,
I eat alot of tinned salmon, mainly at lunch every day, with 2 boiled eggs.I was wondering if I should?.(unsure of the mercury levels, in some types of fish) And I know you can`t have too much mecury whilst pregnant.
Thanks, Helen

Answer: Hi Helen, Here is a link to safe foods during pregnancy: http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/consumer/pregnancy.asp Usually tinned fish is safe as it is very young fish that is used for canning. Best wishes, Alex.
