Low Mercury diet
Mercury is a metal that naturally occurs in the environment. Sometimes it can get into our food.
Eating food with too much mercury can lead to high mercury levels in our body. This may cause problems with our nerves and brain. This is a special concern for some people like pregnant women, as this can affect healthy child development.
Mercury has been found in some fish. Larger fish tend to be higher in mercury because they eat smaller fish. This concentrates mercury in their bodies.
