Is it safe to have Swordfish during pregnancy?

Why is eating swordfish dangerous for pregnant women

Swordfish - also known as...

Broadbills, Xiphias gladius

Why is eating swordfish dangerous for pregnant women?

Despite being a culinary favorite amongst several Asian cultures, the swordfish is a dangerous fish to eat during pregnancy. This is because it contains high levels of mercury making it toxic for consumption. The excess of mercury in swordfish can cause brain damage in your baby and delay its bodily development. It also leads to the accumulation of methyl mercury that consequently damages your lungs, kidneys, and nervous system. We recommend that you absolutely stay away from eating swordfish during pregnancy, and satiate all your cravings for the fish post pregnancy.
