Eating Fish and Pregnancy

Pregnancy can be
a time of joy, discovery and…straight up confusion. One of the
biggest areas of confusion is around what to eat and what not to eat
during pregnancy. And the debate about fish tops the list. To add
further mayhem to the which-way-is-up-ness, a Washington Post article
this week
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/03/AR2007100301278.html?hpid%3Dmoreheadlines&sub=new reported
that a group of top scientists are now advising pregnant and
breast-feeding women to eat At LEAST 12 ounces of fish and seafood each
week to make sure their baby’s brain development stays on track. This
goes against previous FDA recommendations in 2001 and 2004 that
pregnant and breast-feeding women have NO MORE THAN 12 ounces of fish
and seafood per week because of fears about mercury contamination.

Now
that I’ve got that plug out of the way, pregnant women should keep in
mind that omega 3 fatty acids are key nutrients for the brain and
nervous system. The National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition,
which say its best to choose ocean fish like salmon and tuna and
sardines. Either way, its an important matter that merits plenty of
research and a lot of question-asking for every pregnant woman.
