Fish, Mercury & Nutrition: The Net Effect

The half-hour documentary presents the many benefits of eating ocean fish and weighs those benefits against the risk of mercury exposure for the population with the most to gain (or lose): unborn and young children. Pregnant and nursing mothers will learn why two ocean fish meals a week during the critical window of development can safely give their babies lifelong benefits. The rest of the population also benefits by including ocean fish in their healthy diets.
