FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CANNED TUNA
Yes, canned tuna is good protein-rich food and contains many vitamins and minerals such as B-Complex vitamins, vitamins A and D as well as iron, selenium, and phosphorus. Tuna also contains omega 3 fatty acids essential DHA and EPA.
From a nutritional point of view, water-filled tuna gives you pure protein and a subtle tuna flavor. Oil-filled tuna, on the other hand, has a softer texture and a stronger tuna flavor. Both water-soluble and oil-rich are excellent sources of protein and can be found in sustainable, non-GMO products.
However, some sources say that you will need to eat at least three cans of tuna a day for six months to expose to mercury poisoning.

Greek yogurt serves as a mayo instead of tuna, chicken, egg, pasta, or potato salad. You can change the whole mayo if you are ready for a big change or start with halfsies and take it lightly.
Tuna is amazingly nutritious and full of protein, healthy fats, and vitamins – but it should not be eaten every day. The FDA recommends that adults eat 3-5 ounces (85-140 grams) of fish 2-3 times a week to obtain adequate omega-3 fatty acids and other beneficial nutrients
Eating fish is not the health of your heart! Heavy metals are concentrated in tuna because of the unclean fish they eat. Tuna meat is loaded with heavy metals that attack the heart muscle, so the toxicity outweighs any of the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.
Bad canned tuna can make you sick and we are not talking about mercury poisoning. The immature fish themselves need to be handled with care. Canned fish can be treated differently. Captured tuna can cause food poisoning if misused.
