Healthy Fish Choices

HealthyFishChoices.org helps solve the Goldilocks problem


In advising patients about fish consumption, medical practitioners who treat pregnant women, women of childbearing age or parents of young children face what we call the Goldilocks problem- the omega-3 fatty acids in fish are healthful, so don't eat too little; but mercury and PCB's in fish are harmful, so don't eat too much - eat the amount of fish that's just right.

The Healthy Fish Choices online CME curriculum gives medical practitioners the information they need to confidently advise their patients on the risks and benefits of fish consumption. Practitioners can obtain up to 12 CME credits at a nominal cost. Go to www.healthyfishchoices.org to learn more or to sign up.
