FDA Says Eating Fish is Good for Brain Development & Boosting Child's IQ

The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have updated and released new seafood consumption guidelines for pregnant women, nursing women, and young children. After years of recommending a "maximum" amount of fish to eat weekly, the new recommendation proposes a "minimum" consumption level of two to three servings per week. 

"For years, many women have limited or avoided eating fish during pregnancy or feeding fish to their young children, " said Stephen Ostroff, the FDA's acting chief scientist.   "The information that's been developed over the past decade strongly demonstrates that the health benefits that accrue from the consumption of fish far outweigh any risk."
