California State Legislators have come out in opposition to any weakening of mercury-in-fish advisories by the FDA. The FDA recently released a draft report for public comment, which attempts to average the mercury from seafood exposure across the U. S. population while downplaying the risks to the most vulnerable populations, which are women, children, women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant and people who eat a lot of fish. Using such data to set standards for mercury-in-seafood, or the weakening or removal of the current FDA advisory, would adversely affect the health of millions of Americans, especially children.
