A recent study conducted by the Indiana University School of Public Health at Bloomington has found that young adults who ingest high levels of mercury are 65 percent more likely to get type 2 diabetes later on in life. The university’s epidemiologist Ka He lead the study and concluded that eating shellfish and other high mercury level fish will expose people to the most mercury of all food available. So before you look to fish as the nutritional go-to food at the supermarket, think twice. You might have thought that sugar was going lead you down the dark and dreary road to type 2 diabetes, but fish and the mercury in it could be the culprit instead.
