New Online Seafood Calculator is a Hit

It’s been less than a week since the launch of, and our new seafood and health website is already a hit. Unlike similar tools created by agenda-driven activist groups, offers the most up-to-date information about the health benefits and risks of eating the twelve most popular different seafood varieties. This morning WKRC-TV anchor Liz Bonis gave “Good Morning Cincinnati” viewers a crash course on our new website.
As Bonis explained on the air today,

“This might be a good tool to use during pregnancy, where you want to balance the body’s needs based on the baby’s needs and development….
“What you’ll likely see when you go to this, as researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found, most often seafood benefits outweigh the risks. For example, the other thing you’ll notice is that you’ll have to eat quite a bit of [seafood] to be dangerous.
“I put in canned light tuna, one of my favorites, and my weight of 130 pounds and found out I’d have to eat regularly 123 ounces – that’s almost eight pounds of it – every week for it to have a negative health risk from mercury. That’s a whooole lot of tuna fish.”

In other words, Bonis’s hypothetical risk of mercury-related health problems starts at a weekly intake of more than 20 six-ounce cans. But every canned tuna lunch would deliver all the protein and selenium she needs for the whole day, and high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, potassium, and iron.
