Mercury is a metal that originates on land, then works its way into our waters where it's absorbed by smaller fish. However, mercury does not dissolve or break down, but rather accumulates as larger, predatory fish eat down the food chain.
When humans consume mercury-laden fish, the mercury is absorbed into our systems, acting as a toxin that can impact brain function and development. Those who are pregnant should specifically stay away from food sources that could contain mercury.
