Food safety,

Okay, so I've eaten cooked fish. Not too sure if it's deep sea. Because those contain the most mercury. And I've consumed some caffeine. (Not a whole lot though). Nothing bad has happened, but I was wondering if I continued staying away from those would I still be as much at risk? Please reply, pretty concerned.

You'll be fine I drink Starbucks at least 3 times a week and I have salmon everytime I go out to eat.

You can have at least 2 cups of coffee a day. They recommend to stay under 200 mg of caffeine. I drink coffee everyday. I try to drink decaf so I can have more (I drink 4-6 liters of water a day though) as for fish. It's healthy for you to eat fish like salmon, shrimp, tuna.. ect. Just all in moderation:)

It's OK to eat fish. I eat seafood 3 or 4 times a week and my doctor said that's fine because seafood is really good for you. It's fine to drink caffeinated beverages too, just don't drink too much.
