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:
