FALL ON YOUR SWORDFISH?

This sounds like a broken record, but as long as they keep reporting these, I'll keep pointing them out, because "fish" is so often smuggled into other stories about healthy plant-based diets: "Store-bought swordfish contained mercury levels above the legal limit in a study released yesterday by environmental groups. A University of North Carolina lab found elevated mercury concentrations in 24 swordfish samples from supermarket chains including Safeway, Shaws, Albertsons and Whole Foods." Note that this isn't just about finding elevated mercury levels out in the ocean. This is the actual fish people are buying and eating. And of course, mercury is only one of the health problems with eating fish, but that's enough for now.
