Tuna, fresh and canned, is a very healthy food that is high in protein as well as a great source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, the sad news is that tuna can contain high levels of an environmental toxin called methylmercury. Methylmercury is a neurological toxin that can cause serious health problems including impaired hearing and speech problems, vision problems, lack of coordination, and developmental delays in children. Large tuna contain the most mercury, since it builds up over time. Many large tunas have been around for more than 40 years and have been eating smaller fish that also contain mercury.
