Mercury levels in fish may be overstated (September 30, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From the UK - According to research published in Environmental Health Perspectives, mercury levels in fish may not be as concerning as previously thought. Researchers studied over 100 food and drink items that were consumed by nearly 5,000 pregnant women. Results showed that these items together accounted for less that 17% of mercury levels in the body. The new report found that fish, specifically, accounts for only 7% of mercury levels in the body.
