As a consumer, it can be confusing to keep things straight regarding tuna consumption recommendations. How much can I eat? How much should I be eating?
Really, it’s simple: government guidelines regarding tuna consumption are ONLY for pregnant women or women who may be trying to become pregnant. For the rest of consumers and the general public the best advice about tuna consumption is: eat more of it! Most health experts agree that the vast majority of Americans would benefit from eating 8-12 ounces of seafood – including tuna – weekly for optimal health.
