WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A new iPhone app can help women who are pregnant or nursing safely eat seafood.
Purdue University says professor of food toxicology Charles Santerre created the free app called Fish4Health. It's available at iTunes and Purdue Extension's The Education Store. Android users can find it here.
The app helps women track their intake of seafood, fish oil supplements, healthy fats and mercury. Santerrre says babies are the most vulnerable to mercury contamination.
Based on the latest research, the app also contains information on fish species from across the country. The app is available in English, Spanish and traditional or simplified Chinese.
Santerre says pregnant or nursing women should consume eight to 12 ounces of fish per week.
