could apregnant woman eat sea food?
Thanks for your posting,
Earlier there was saying that many marine species may contain high levels of mercury, which endangers newborns and fetuses. Currently, the Food and Drug Administration advises pregnant women to limit their weekly seafood consumption to no more than 12 ounces, or about two servings, per week. That group’s scientific advisors say that pregnant women and nursing mothers should eat at least 12 ounces of fish per week. Although both recommendations acknowledge that pregnant women can safely eat about two servings a week, fears of mercury contamination in seafood have prompted many pregnant women to forgo fish entirely. An increasing number of studies indicate that omega-3 fatty acids, found mostly in fish, are essential to brain development in fetuses and newborns.
So I recommend you to consult one nutritionist regarding this. Take care!
