In a perfect example of the changing media attitude toward science-based information concerning seafood advice, NFI’s registered dietitian, Jennifer McGuire, was given the opportunity last week to clear up some confusing recommendations from Men’s Health editor Eric Adams. In an earlier interview with local DC radio station WTOP, Adams touted the widely misused FDA seafood guidance for pregnant women as the advice everyone should follow, including the magazine’s largely male audience. According to Adams, we should be reducing the amount of canned tuna we eat each week, with albacore tuna limited to only 6 ounces a week.
After a quick response from NFI explaining the discrepancies in Adams’ recommendation (including the fact that that advice is meant for pregnant women ONLY), McGuire was invited on the show Friday night to correct these common misconceptions on seafood advice.
