Summary: Mother/child pairs from the Seychelles Islands have been continually followed for nearly 20 years to determine if there should be concerns about mercury that go along with the benefits of eating fish. In a review of the latest data, researchers report no pattern of negative effects and warn against giving or following advice that suggests limiting fish consumption.
