how many times a week are you allowed to eat canned tuna fish? or say, a tuna fish sandwhich from subway? i hear conflicting answers. my doctor said it's o.k. to eat, it's more tuna steaks that you should avoid, but my sisters doctor said to avoid tuna fish all together.

Same here. I've heard you can eat it once or twice, but to limit it to that and no more.

I get conflicting stories too, but my doc said it's ok a few times a week. The only thing is that if something could be bad for the baby, why not try and avoid it altogether.... then again, we're told to not eat so many different things that that isn't always possible. I say everything in moderation. (of course there are obvious exceptions)

I heard it was once a week because Tuna is a large fish and their Mercury level is high.

Make sure you eat the chunk light and not the albacore because its higher in mercury

I read you should have fresh tuna steaks no more than twice a week but you can have up to 4 small tins of tuna a week.
