Mercury in Fish?..Relax!

Last time I met professor Gerhard N. Schrauzer at his Biological Trace Element Research Institute we were talking about mercury in fish and the claimed danger of eating fish particularly for pregnant women.

According to Professor Schrauzer, “the health benefits of fish greatly outweigh any risk associated with their mercury content, since the mercury in them is present as a complex with selenium, rendering it harmless. This was known already in the 1970s. What needs to be emphasized is that selenium is a natural antidote of mercury, and since in most fish selenium is present in excess over mercury, fish are good nutritional sources of this vitally important trace element. But those who still worry about the mercury in fish should consume sardines and other small fish as these contain only very small amounts of mercury.”
