Sushi, the new Russian roulette

Skip the sushi, some people are saying—it's not safe to eat. And not because of bacteria or anything like that, but because of high levels of mercury.

Upon sending tuna (maguro) from some of the most popular sushi restaurants in Los Angeles to a lab for testing, they found the level of mercury in the tuna to be "so high they should be keeping this food off their lists,” said the head of the study. He added: “Eating sushi has become the new Russian roulette.”
