Q: I have heard that it is bad to eat some fish. Is this true?
Yes, it is bad to eat some seafood, but for two different reasons.
One reason is that certain types of seafood are bad for the environment.
The other reason is that some types are bad for you in a health
sense. Some fish are high in mercury or PCBs… things that
you definitely do not want in your body, especially if you are pregnant.
