Couple of questions:

How much canned tuna can you eat without risking your health?

Would one can a day be to much?

How much tuna are you eating atm?

Thanks in advance

I’ve limited myself to 1 can per week. Instead I take fish oil daily. I can’t remember where I read the “1 can per week limitation” so you’ll have to investigate and let us all know what the correct answer is. Or one of these smart guys will get on and tell us…

Look this up for your jurisdiction. Generally it’s okay if you’re a healthy young guy but like anything, moderation is key.
