Your sushi habit might not as be as healthy as you thought. A recent New York Times exposé tested tuna sushi from 20 Manhattan stores and restaurants and found that, at most of them, eating just six pieces of raw tuna a week would result in dangerously high mercury levels. The effects could range from kidney and lung disorders to sensory impairment and a lack of coordination-typically symptoms of neurological problems. So why are tuna fish so full of mercury? Since they swim high on the food chain, their muscles accumulate methyl mercury from all of the smaller fishes they've eaten over the course of their lives.
