According to a new series of reports derived from an EPA study, there's generally even more mercury in fish than previously reported. And the previous reports were alarming enough. With about 2,500 fish collected from 260 bodies of water nationally, more than half of the fish samples were contaminated above safety limits for women of childbearing age, and more than three-quarters exceeded limits for children under 3 who eat fish twice a week. In some states it's even worse than that - "Almost 90 percent of the fish from Maine lakes that were tested in a federal study contained unsafe levels of mercury." I'm willing to bet you won't have to worry about same in flax seeds.
