What You Need to Know About Mercury in Fish and Shellfish

For those of us that choose organic foods we do so with the belief that consuming foods grown without chemical pesticides and fertilizers will reduce our intake of poisons into our bodies. We do so at a time when governmental bodies do not support this with health warnings about pesticides in produce.

The EPA & FDA still remain under-cautious about chemicals in our food. So, when they do issue health warnings about food consumption it is worthy of notice.

The EPA & FDA Advice about mercury in seafood just helps to indicate that we have a serious problem with seafood contamination.

At Organic Connection we are fussier about foods - we don't want to be offering you foods with serious health concerns. Hence the reason for our small, carefully chosen selection of seafoods.

We offer Wild Alaskan Salmon, Pollock (Alaskan) & Organic Shrimp - all known to be low in mercury and sustainably produced. CNN Seafood Video
