1. I'm worried about mercury contamination. Should I skip fish altogether?

Absolutely not. "You should be much more nervous about how you're risking your health if you don't eat fish," says Dariush Mozaffarian, M.D., a cardiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health, who co-authored a recent study analyzing the pros and cons of fish consumption. "Seafood is a key source of heart-healthy lean protein—everyone should aim to have two servings per week." And if you choose varieties rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as tuna or salmon, you can reduce your risk of death from a heart attack by 36 percent, according to Mozaffarian's research. These fatty acids also play a crucial role in infants' brain development and may help lessen depression in adults.
