I’m sue o’neil with another star smart health tip.  Today talking fish.  Lots of talk about fish containing Heart-Healthy Fat?  But which fish has the most?   fish like salmon and bluefish contain the highest amounts of heart-healthy fish oil, while pollock, herring, sardines and anchovies are other solid options. The key is to balance the benefits of a fish with its harmful mercury content. One example: Tuna steaks may be high in heart-healthy omega-3 fish oil, but they also possess more mercury, so you should consider limiting your consumption of this specific food to no more than twice a week.

Due to this, the FDA currently recommends avoiding certain seafood -- mercury-rich fish include shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish. In particular, pregnant women (or those trying to conceive), children under the age of 12, and individuals with immune-system problems (taking medications that suppress function, like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or under cancer treatments) should not eat these varieties

Several groups have been shown to be more vulnerable to the bacteria that can be found in raw fish, so it you’re pregnant (or planning to be), a child or senior, or have an impaired immune system, do not partake in sushi. However, if you don’t fall into any of the categories above, raw fish can be safe to eat.  Oh and which is better?  Frozen Versus Fresh: most  fish is “flash frozen” meaning it’s frozen right on the boat immediately after it’s caught. And are just as nutritious and nearly identical taste and texture.
