Mercury In Fish

Environmental Working Group (EWG): In Their Own Words

What They Tell You About:

Mercury In Fish

Fish In a July 2005 report, EWG reported finding dangerous levels of mercury in the blood of 10 babies and 70 adults they analyzed.

Mercury In Fish

What They're Not Telling You

EWG's tests, if they are scientifically grounded, found mercury levels no greater than 2.3 micrograms per liter in any subject. Yet, the National Research Council says that even twenty times that level would be below any known risk.

The Tough Questions:

How does EWG justify declaring public health danger from a study that, by their own numbers, is so far removed from levels that established medical organizations consider risky?
