Tuna and Pregnancy

A new warning tonight for pregnant women. Stay away from tuna until after the baby comes.  That's according to the folks at Consumer Reports Magazine, now that they've determined that even light tuna may contain high levels of mercury.

Previously it was thought that canned light tuna had lower mercury levels, but according to the magazine six percent of canned light tuna tested by the FDA had high levels of mercury.

So, the consumer reports study recommends that pregnant women say no to tuna even though tuna is not a risk to the rest of us in moderation.
