The good sides for consuming tuna can food
First thing first tuna is a great source of high quality protein and each six ounce portion of tuna fish can contains 33 grams of protein with less than 2 grams of fat. This is not a secret anymore that as human, our body needs to get protein intake to support our immune system, for cell growth, and to maintain muscle tissues. This is supported also by the Harvard School of Public Health which mentions that tuna is one of the best fish options to provide some protein.
Second, consuming Tuna can food is good for cardiovascular function due to omega 3 fatty acid contained in the meat. The omega 3 provides Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) which are healthy unsaturated fats that really helpful to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and other health benefits like to lower blood pressure plus enhance blood vessel function. There is this research conducted by scientists which manage to randomly feed some men and women with controlled foods and meals that rich in omega 3 fatty acids. The result showed that those people who eat omega 3 fatty acids meals experienced less stiffness in their arteries and compared with those who eat controlled foods. This research has been released in Clinical Nutrition journal, March 2010 issue.
It is interesting that tuna is reported to have Niacin (one of the B vitamins type) which useful to maintain HDL cholesterol level or High Density Lipoprotein cholesterol. This is considered as good cholesterol that prevent bad cholesterol or LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol to be stored and in the end become plaque in artery walls. Of course higher LDL cholesterol level will lead to certain dangerous disease. A research by University of California showing that the niacin will prevent our liver to remove good cholesterol from the blood thus it will maintain the level of HDL cholesterol in our body.
The bad sides of consuming tuna can food

In addition, the Food and Drug Administration takes some note that light tuna is presumably safer than white tuna because the amount of mercury in light tuna is below white tuna. That’s why it is very recommended that you need to consult your healthy expert or doctor before you consume canned tuna food specifically for pregnant mother.
