    Tuna is one of the foods I have eliminated from my diet. Tuna is very high in mercury. Many of the foods that were considered healthy at one time have now been contaminated with pesticides, gmos and mercury.

      True it is hard to find foods now that are contaminated in some way or another and impossible to avoid all contaminants in food. Chunk light tuna has less mercury than albacore and it is a good idea to limit how often you eat it! Also, Sustainable Sea tuna is all wild caught and they catch smaller fish (which means less mercury and higher Omega 3’s) and they also use BPA cans. 😉
