Higher levels of mercury found in mothers who eat more fish have been associated with birth defects, seizures, mental retardation, developmental disabilities and cerebral palsy. This is mostly the result of women having eaten fish when they were pregnant. Scientists believe that fetuses are much more sensitive to mercury exposure than are adults, although adults do suffer from varying degrees of brain damage from fish consumption.

Along with being a medical weight loss clinic, Lifetime Health Weight Loss offers heavy metal testing to determine your levels of mercury, lead and several other metals.
