Study: High Fish Intake Harms Babies’ Brains

January 6, 2011

Seems that pregnant mothers who eat a lot of fish may be doing their babies more harm than good. Test scores indicate that the methyl mercury present in fish may be impairing their babies’ brain development, in effect undoing any good derived from the DHA naturally present in fish.

If you want the benefits of DHA, taking an algae-based supplement seems the best choice in every possible way. (Thanks, Matt.) Link.
