I think you mean the acidy in the tuna is very high?

This article goes into the whole acid/alkaline and explains it much better than I can.
So enjoy.

Or are you talking about something else?

I will probably die soon then.

I have heard you should not eat more than 3 fish caught in the Great Lakes in a week. Never anything like that about Tuna.

I am pretty sure that is a false statement. As stated above I also assume the TS is referring to mercury levels, however I wanted to address this. Many people eat to stay in an alkaline state. Things like greens are important to the ph level of your body. Without getting too in depth what you eat can leave you in an acidic state which causes your body to work harder to keep your blood ph nuetral.
